For the gas contracts of 2009 needs to be a political liability – Poroshenko

The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that there should be political responsibility for signing gas contracts with Russia in 2009.

“I say today about what needs to be responsibility. I’m not talking about criminal responsibility – and this is not the case of the President, after all, is the appropriate bodies, I am talking about political responsibility: when you put the country to its knees and today it is proven not by politicians, not the experts as the highest international judicial authority. It is proved that put the interests of Ukraine”, – said Poroshenko during a visit to Tripoli TPP (Kyiv region) on Thursday.

As you know, the “Block of Petro Poroshenko” wants the anti-corruption bodies have checked the contract for the supply of Russian natural gas in 2009, concluded by Yulia Tymoshenko for corruption and treason.

“In fact, today every Ukrainian: old and newborn, sick and poor gave Putin around 700 dollars. The signed contract is not just a crime against the Ukrainian people, is a betrayal of national interests, which nearly destroyed the country”, – said Gerasimov.
