Ukraine is willing to guarantee for free the delivery of the Russian natural gas until a contract with Russia will be signed, Ukraine's President Viktor Yushcenko announced, adding that Russia has been formally announced about this.

In a press conference in London, Ukraine's PM said that currently, all conflictual commercial issues need to be left aside as this is not what interests the European citizen. He declared that the only official request for Russia is to fill up the pipes to the maximum.
