Yatsenyuk told a government meeting on Saturday that Russia’s decision is an economic aggression targeting industrial companies and Ukrainian people. He said Kiev will apply all measures with Russian gas giant Gazprom to resolve the situation including using international legal measures.
Gazprom increased gas prices to Ukraine from 268.5 USD to 485.5 USD per 1,000m3.
