Attempt of power structures of Ukraine to withdraw the contract on transit of the Russian gas discredits the country.
It was declared by the prime minister - the minister of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin on a press - conferences in Moscow.
"It is clear that it only discredits the country and sets thinking on alternative ways of delivery of our hydrocarbons", - Putin told.
He expressed opinion that construction of the gas pipelines similar to South Stream, will discipline only all transit countries.
He also accused Ukraine that it didn't fulfill obligations for purchase of the contracted volume of gas twice.
"Our Ukrainian partners already didn't fulfill the obligation to take gas in that volume which they contracted twice. They appealed to us not to apply penalties, and we met requirements of them", - Putin told.
