15.01.09


President Victor Yushchenko of Ukraine arrived in London earlier today for a meeting with Prime Minister Gordon Brown to discuss the gas-crisis.

In an interview with journalists from Ukrainian and Russian sections of BBC World Service, Mr Yushchenko said that one of the aims of his visit was to provide the European community with truthful information on how the gas-crisis developed.

He reiterated that Ukraine had done nothing to reduce or prevent gas supplies from reaching Europe and expressed an assurance that Russia and Ukraine were dutybound to honour their contractual obligations to supply gas to Europe:  Russian gas, Ukrainian transit.

President Yushchenko repeatedly stated that Ukraine guarantees to deliver Russian gas to Europe at full capacity if the Russian Federations sends the gas down the pipelines . 

Details of the President's meeting with Mr Brown will follow shortly.
