Petro Poroshenko: Ukraine to refuse Russian gas in 2 years

President Petro Poroshenko said that Ukraine would be able to give up on Russian gas in two years.

"I am fully convinced that in two years we will not need Russian gas," the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said at the Europe Institute at the University of Zurich.

The President noted that Ukraine is already taking measures to strengthen its energy security.

According to Poroshenko, there is already launched gas reverse from other European countries, and European and American investors are attracted to the modernization of the GTS.

It is to be recalled that this President's address began with a scandal – the pro-Russian provocateurs tried to disrupt the lecture of Poroshenko. The Head of State said the activists that they should be grateful for the opportunity to freely express their position in Switzerland, which is impossible in Russia. "Here in Switzerland, these people can say whatever they want, in the presence of the President of Ukraine. And this is our strength. In Russia, it would be impossible," Poroshenko said in response to the cries in his address.

Earlier, during the meeting with Prime Minister of Poland President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko informed Eva Kopacz about the current situation in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
