Πούτιν: Οι συμφωνίες μας με την Ουκρανία ισχύουν ανεξαρτήτως κυβέρνησης /Russia is ready to support Ukraine regardless of government (2video)

Ο πρόεδρος της Ρωσίας Βλάντιμιρ Πούτιν δήλωσε την Τρίτη ότι η Μόσχα θα τιμήσει τις υποχρεώσεις της και θα δανείσει στην Ουκρανία 15 δισεκατομμύρια δολάρια, μειώνοντας ταυτόχρονα τις τιμές φυσικού αερίου, ακόμη και αν η επόμενη κυβέρνηση στο Κίεβο είναι της αντιπολίτευσης.
«Σχετικά με την ερώτησή σας για το κατά πόσο θα αναθεωρήσουμε τις συμφωνίες μας για τα δάνεια και τον ενεργειακό τομέα εάν η αντιπολίτευση καταλάβει την εξουσία, όχι, δεν θα το κάνουμε», δήλωσε ο κ. Πούτιν, κατά τη διάρκεια συνέντευξης Τύπου στις Βρυξέλλες, μετά από συνομιλίες τις οποίες είχε με ηγετικούς αξιωματούχους της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης.

Το δάνειο δόθηκε «για να υποστηριχθεί ο λαός της Ουκρανίας, όχι η κυβέρνησή της. Είναι ο κόσμος, ο απλός κόσμος ο οποίος υποφέρει», τόνισε ο ρώσος πρόεδρος.

  • Russia-EU summit: Moscow won't interfere in Ukraine's internal affairs - Putin 

Russia will not interfere in Ukraine's internal affairs and believes that too many mediators could only multiply the number of problems facing the country, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

"Concerning advice for Ukraine on what to do and how. I think the Ukrainian people can sort this out themselves. At least Russia will never interfere in this," Putin said at a press conference following an EU-Russia summit in Brussels on Tuesday.

"I can only imagine how our European partners would have reacted if amid a crisis, say, in Greece or in Cyprus, our foreign minister had appeared at an anti-European rally and started making some calls. We believe this is not very good in general, and, taking into consideration certain specifics of relations between Russia and Ukraine, this is simply unacceptable and impossible for us," Putin said.

  • By extending loan to Ukraine, lowering gas price, Russia backs Ukrainian people, not govt - Putin

Russia will not revise the loan it recently extended to Ukraine and the decision to lower the price at which Ukraine buys Russian gas, no matter who comes to power in Kyiv, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

"We presume that both the loan we have mentioned and the gradual lowering of the prices for energy, primarily gas, were dictated by the need and the desire to support the Ukrainian people rather than some specific government," Putin said at a press conference following an EU-Russia summit in Brussels on Tuesday.

  • Russia is ready to support Ukraine regardless of government - Putin

Russia will not initiate a revision of its agreements with Ukraine concerning loans and the price for energy resources even if the opposition comes to power in this country, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

"Our decision to provide financial assistance to Ukraine is related to possible consequences that could have taken place in case we had decided otherwise", Putin said.

"In reply to the question as to whether we will revise our agreements on the loans and on energy if the opposition comes to power, I'll tell you directly that we won't," Putin said at a press conference following an EU-Russia summit in Brussels on Tuesday when asked whether Russia would demand a revision of the gas contract and loan agreements with Ukraine if an opposition government comes to power in this country.

  1. If new Ukrainian govt revises agenda, Russia may revise agreements with Kyiv - Shuvalov ...

    If a new Ukrainian government announces a different agenda and different priorities, this could theoretically serve as grounds for Moscow to revise the existing agreements with Kyiv, but this possibility is not under consideration now, Russian First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov said.

    "If the Ukrainian government, whatever it is after its formation, announces a different agenda and different priorities, then this would probably be grounds for us to revise the agreements. But it is important for us to comply with all of our commitments within the boundaries of the existing agreements," Shuvalov told journalists following an EU-Russia summit on Tuesday.

    1. Poutine: pas de révision des accords avec l'Ukraine si l'opposition arrive au pouvoir...

      Le président russe a critiqué mardi l'ingérence européenne dans la crise ukrainienne, le principal sujet de tension d'un sommet UE-Russie qui avait été réduit au minimum. Vladimir Poutine a affirmé que la Russie ne réviserait pas ses accords économiques avec l'Ukraine si l'opposition arrive au pouvoir, mais a insisté sur la nécessité de récupérer son argent.

      Vladimir Poutine, qui s'exprimait lors d'une conférence de presse à Bruxelles à l'issue du sommet UE-Russie, a affirmé que sur l'Ukraine, il n'y avait "pas de divergence politique", mais que "c'est l'intérêt économique qui domine".

      Interrogé pour savoir si Moscou reverrait ses accords avec l'Ukraine sur des prêts et sur l'énergie en cas d'arrivée de l'opposition pro-européenne au pouvoir, Vladimir Poutine a répondu: "nous ne le ferons pas".

      "Mais ce qui est important pour nous est que l'économie ukrainienne ait du crédit", a-t-il ajouté. Soulignant que Moscou avait offert un prêt de 15 milliards de dollars à Kiev, il a assuré que la Russie "veut être sûre de récupérer son argent".............http://www.rtbf.be/info/monde/detail_poutine-pas-de-revision-des-accords-avec-l-ukraine-si-l-opposition-arrive-au-pouvoir?id=8187142

  2. S&P: Υποβάθμιση της πιστοληπτικής ικανότητας της Ουκρανίας.....

    Στην υποβάθμιση της πιστοληπτικής ικανότητας της Ουκρανίας από B- σε CCC+, με αρνητικές μάλιστα προοπτικές, προχώρησε η Standard & Poor's.

    Ο αμερικανικός οίκος αξιολόγησης εκτιμά ότι η κατάσταση στην πρώην σοβιετική δημοκρατία τείνει να σταθεροποιηθεί μετά τις εξελίξεις της Τρίτης, οι οποίες είναι πιθανό να αποφορτίσουν το πολιτικό κλίμα στη χώρα.

    Σημειώνει, ωστόσο, ότι οι κίνδυνοι για την προοπτική της οικονομίας της Ουκρανίας λόγω πολιτικής αστάθειας είναι μεγάλοι.

  3. Vladimir Putin tells Brussels to stay out of Ukraine's political crisis...

    Russian president dismisses EU decision to send envoy to Kiev: 'The more intermediaries there are, the more problems there are'

    President Vladmir Putin warned Europe to keep its hands off Ukraine on Tuesday, as Brussels sent its top foreign policy envoy to Kiev to try to mediate in the 10-week stand-off between President Viktor Yanukovych and the opposition on the streets.

    Russia's intervention in Brussels followed Yanukovych's biggest concession to the opposition, the sacking of his hardline prime minister and government and a promise to repeal draconian laws criminalising protest and freedom of speech.

    Putin met EU leaders for the first time since November's clash between the Kremlin and Europe over the future of Ukraine triggered the crisis in Kiev. Catherine Ashton, the EU foreign policy chief, took part in the meetings with Putin in Brussels then travelled to Kiev to try to mediate between the opposing sides.

    "The more intermediaries there are, the more problems there are," Putin said. "I am not sure Ukraine needs intermediaries." He pointedly noted that European leaders would complain if Russia sent envoys to mediate in the Greek crisis of the past four years..............http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jan/28/vladimir-putin-ukraine-crisis-eu

    2. Britain's Cameron urges Ukraine to turn towards Europe again ...

      Prime Minister David Cameron on Tuesday urged Ukraine to turn back towards Europe, a spokesman for the British leader said, paving the way for the revival of a shelved trade agreement between Kiev and the European Union.

      Cameron's comments came after Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov resigned and deputies loyal to President Viktor Yanukovich, acting to calm violent street protests, back-tracked and overturned anti-protest laws they rammed through parliament 12 days ago.

      A source familiar with Cameron's thinking said his intervention was meant to send a message to the Ukrainian people that the door to a stalled trade agreement with the EU remained open if they wanted it.

      The EU said in December it was suspending further work with Ukraine on the ambitious trade and cooperation agreement because the government in Kiev had failed to give a clear commitment to signing the deal.

      As the Conservative caucus stood behind him, Alexander said that the move is “effective immediately,” but did not specify which Ukrainian officials would be subject to the new measure.

      “Recent actions by members of Ukraine's ruling elite in the face of popular and growing protests have been utterly deplorable, and compel us to take targeted and meaningful action,” Alexander said, adding that the federal government will continue to monitor the situation in Ukraine and consider taking further action if necessary.......Read more: http://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/canada-to-restrict-entry-of-some-ukrainian-government-officials-1.1659840#ixzz2rjLawpAp

      Le Canada a interdit l'entrée sur son territoire à plusieurs membres du gouvernement ukrainien impliqués dans la répression des manifestations à Kiev, a annoncé le ministre canadien de l'Immigration Chris Alexander cité par les médias occidentaux.

      "A compter de ce moment, notre gouvernement limitera l'entrée au Canada des principaux membres du gouvernement ukrainien responsables d'avoir employé la force contre l'opposition", a déclaré le ministre.

      L'identité des responsables visés par les sanctions n'a pas été précisée.

    5. Δήλωση του Συμβουλίου της Ομοσπονδίας για την Ουκρανία ....

      Το Συμβούλιο της Ομοσπονδίας της Ρωσίας εξέφρασε «απορία και αγανάκτηση για τις δηλώσεις ορισμένων δυτικών πολιτικών, οι οποίοι επεμβαίνουν ξεδιάντροπα στις εσωτερικές υποθέσεις της Ουκρανίας και προκαλούν εσκεμμένα αποσταθεροποίηση της κατάστασης στη χώρα αυτή», - αναφέρεται σε δήλωση, που υιοθέτησε σήμερα Τετάρτη η Άνω Βουλή του Ρωσικού Κοινοβουλίου.

      Κατά την άποψη των Γερουσιαστών, αυτές οι ενέργειες αποσκοπούν «στη δυσφήμιση και ανατροπή των νόμιμων Αρχών». «Τα πογκρόμ και οι εμπρησμοί στο Κίεβο και σε άλλες πόλεις της Ουκρανίας ... οι επιθετικές ενέργειες εναντίον των δυνάμεων ασφαλείας, οι οποίες οδήγησαν στην απώλεια ανθρώπινων ζωών και σε σημαντικό αριθμό τραυματιών, λαμβάνουν χώρα με την έγκριση εκείνων που έβγαλαν τους ανθρώπους στους δρόμους».

      Οι Γερουσιαστές τονίζουν ότι η Ουκρανία βρίσκεται σε κατάσταση βαθιάς πολιτικής κρίσης, που μπορεί να έχει πολύ σοβαρές συνέπειες.

  5. Russia to Wait for New Ukrainian Govt Before Releasing More Aid....

    KIEV, January 29 (RIA Novosti) – Russia warned Ukraine on Wednesday that it will halt the implementation of a financial aid package until the crisis-hit former Soviet nation has formed a new government.

    Financial and energy agreements with Ukraine will only be honored when “we understand what sort of government there will be, who will be working in it and what rules they will stick to,” Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told the Cabinet on Wednesday, Prime business news agency reported.

    “That’s sensible, let’s wait for the new Ukrainian government to be formed,” responded President Vladimir Putin, who was also present at the meeting, Prime reported.

    Russia agreed to supply Ukraine with $15 billion worth of loans and slash the price for gas in a December deal that was widely seen as a political reward for Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych after his decision to back off from integration plans with Europe and cement closer ties with Russia..................http://en.ria.ru/russia/20140129/187025942/Russia-to-Wait-for-New-Ukrainian-Govt-Before-Releasing-More-Aid.html

  7. Russia decides to pause financial support to Ukraine due to political instability....

    Moskovskiy Komsomolets reports that Russia has paused the promised financial support to Ukraine after its Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov stepped down from his post; Moscow wishes to wait with buying bonds issued by Kiev only after the new Cabinet is formed. The daily notes that the decision has been made members of Russia's extended government, who gathered on Wednesday in the presidential administration in Novo Ogariovo. President Vladimir Putin, who only a day ago insisted that Russia would continue its support to the neighboring country, agreed that the decision to wait it out was a sound one. The daily reminds that the first batch of Ukraine's bonds was bought in December with a total volume of $3 billion – Putin noted that this is significant amount. Moreover, Kiev has yet to pay for the debt it ows for Russian gas. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev reminded that Nikolai Azarov agreed to a clear scenario according to which Kiev would adopt a repayment plan for the $2.7 billion gas debt. Quote “They've paid almost nothing last year, asked for grace period several times and refused to pay for current shipments even though their price was lowered.” end quote. Medevedev suggested that the ongoing insolvency of the country changed the situation and should be considered when building relations with the pending new government of Ukraine..............http://voiceofrussia.com/radio_broadcast/25950828/261163659/
