Yulia Tymoshenko on the energy dialogue with Russia

In the run-up to the G8 summit in St. Petersburg, former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko calls on politicians not to abandon Ukraine in its efforts to secure its energy imports. "The first major step should be to include Ukraine in the energy debate between the EU and Russia. It's only natural that the country which delivers most of Russia's gas supplies to Europe take part in the dialogue… It's about not leaving any country to fend for itself or conduct bilateral negotiations which affect us all. Interdependence is one of the defining characteristics of our time and requires a many-sided approach."

The Gas Dispute and Ukaine's Position in Europe

Former Ukrainian prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko doesn't approve of the compromise reached between Ukraine and Russia in the gas dispute, and calls for a court inquiry into "who exactly stands to profit from this deal". In a text written for Project Syndicate and published in the newspaper, she goes on to demand stronger cooperation with Europe. "We want free trade and open markets in every country in the world. We want prospering and democratic neighbours. We don't want to be in the front line of a conflict – much less of a potential war zone – between Russia and the West. Our goal is therefore to create a democratic Ukraine which nestles between prospering, like-minded neighbours to the East and to the West. Of course, the danger of tyranny, unrest and war spreading within the so-called 'post-Soviet region' is great. This is why Ukraine is very much focused on limiting its vulnerability. The Ukrainians' enthusiasm for the EU is based on the idea that Europe's security is indivisible."
