Gazprom, Russia’s largest energy supplier, ceased delivery of natural gas to Ukraine on 1 July, after Ukraine had not paid its advance bill for July. At this level, you pay up front, and there are no gentle reminders.

Umjesto toga, Gazprom izvršni Aleksej Miller B. vas odvaja se odmah, izjavljujući: "Gazprom neće isporučiti plin Ukrajini pod svaku cijenu, bez plaćanja unaprijed."

Ho-Hum. S obzirom na sadašnju situaciju između Ukrajine i Rusije, cut-off mogao vjerojatno neće doći u gorem trenutku čak i ako je, kako analitičari sugeriraju, opskrba rez još nema kritične posljedice u kratkom roku u smislu potrošnje ili plina pritjecati Europi, dodajući da Ukrajina ima dovoljno da se zalihe plina da bi se kroz ljeto, kada je potrošnja je niska.

And it isn’t the first time, for that matter; Russia briefly cut natural gas supplies to Ukraine in June 2014 during the growing conflict between the Ukrainian Army and pro-Russian separatists in south-eastern Ukraine, and disputes over gas prices between Russia and Ukraine also led to shut-offs in 2006 and 2008.

Given the Ukraine government’s present economic failures, it does seem more than a little surprising that it is not looking closer to home concerning meeting its gas and energy needs, specifically to the Group DF (Dmirty Firtash), which has this year, among other things, been instrumental in the launch of the Agency for the Modernization of Ukraine (AMU).

Početkom ožujka, predstavnici Francuske, Njemačke i Velike Britanije podržali prijedlog zajednički proglašen od strane Federacije poslodavaca Ukrajine i njezinih sindikata za postavljanje Agenciju za modernizaciju Ukrajine, koji je nedugo (200 dana nakon lansiranja) na predstaviti jasan i sveobuhvatan Ukrajina modernizacija akcijski plan, koji je postavljen da bude izrađen osam renomiranih europskih političara i poslovnih ljudi vodećih različite aspekte eurointegracija Ukrajine, uključujući zdravstvo, financije i oporezivanje, gospodarstvu, trgovini, ustavne i pravne reforme, protiv -corruption i provedba zakona.

And, given DF’s proven track record in supplying reliable, cheap gas to Ukraine and onwards to Europe, it is more than a little startling that, given the government’s contrasting performance, it appears unwilling at present to entertain the idea of co-operating with DF, rather than stifling its operations due to petty politics.

Oglas

The government should really look to its laurels – with Greece on the verge of default, leaving the eurozone and the EU, Ukraine may very well follow suit. Russia has cut off the country’s gas supply, over a renewed pricing/payments dispute that the government is also responsible for; such economic failure is letting the rest of Europe down, as well as providing Russia with ever-more political power with which to blackmail other nations.

As already stated, under DF, gas supply was sustainable, reliable and cheap, so why does the government of Ukraine simply not admit its energy shortcomings and give AMU more credit and, most importantly, try to work with it in order to save the country’s economy?

Group DF has declared on a number of occasions its intention to consolidate gas distribution assets in order to increase their management efficiency and provide higher-quality service for end consumers of gas, including businesses, utility providers, government institutions and the Ukrainian people. Group DF’s strategy in gas distribution envisages significant investments in the industry in order to build a business capable of transforming the Ukraine gas industry.

U međuvremenu, povjerenik za energetiku Maroš Šefčovič je na starom svile u potrazi za novim ugovorima o opskrbi plinom koji će slomiti Gazproma držati na europskom tržištu, i Ukrajina premijer arsenij jacenjuk je rekao da Ukrajina treba prebaciti na isključivo domaće vađenje prirodnog plina za 2025 - Iskreno, to bi trebao biti cilj da se može doći daleko ranije.
