Russian deliveries of gas to Ukraine need to be reestablished…
It was a rather classy move from Yuri Boyko. There is nothing wrong in getting cheaper gas for the people. Perhaps the most powerful PR move of this election campaign.
Boyko spoke with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Friday in the meeting that was televised live on Ukrainian television. Boyko said he would like Ukraine to resume gas purchases from Russia, which should lower the skyrocketing utility bills for Ukrainians.
The very visit is rare for Ukrainian politicians these days, since any connections to Russia are largely regarded as toxic because of Russia’s annexation of the Crimean peninsula in 2014 and its ongoing support for separatists in the deadly conflict in Ukraine’s east.
I doubt the Ukrainian country bumpkins will get this, they wanna burn wood.
