The main condition of success in involvement of foreign investors to modernization of the Ukrainian gas transmission system is restructuring of "Naftogaz of Ukraine", experts consider.

Governmental structures have to submit on continuation of month the plan of measures on implementation of arrangements between Ukraine and EU, and for half a year to find partners on GTS modernization.

The president of the Kiev international power club Alexander Todiychuk considers that search of investors - not a problem, but at first Ukraine should allocate production, trade in gas and its transit in separate commercial structures.

"It would be expedient that the Ukrainian party itself attracted investments of 50%. Also I don't exclude that the European Union then would agree to finance other 50% independently as it was in other countries", - Todiychuk speaks, transfers "German wave".

To compensate 3 - milliard investments it will be possible at the expense of means of "Ukratransgaz" which in case of a detachment from "Naftogaz of Ukraine" could be the highly profitable enterprise, Todiychuk considers.

In his opinion if the present opaque structure of the Ukrainian gas market remains without changes, Russians and on absolutely unprofitable conditions for Ukraine will give funds for modernization only.
