U.S. Ambassador: Ukraine has destroyed the “energy weapon” of Russia

US Ambassador to Ukraine Jeffrey Payette said that Kiev managed to destroy the “energy weapon” of Russia, transfers TV channel “Эспрессо.TV”. As such weapons, the Kremlin has used gas, says Payette. The American diplomat noted that last winter Ukraine refused to buy Russian gas in favour of supplies from the EU.

“Ukrainians are no longer in a situation when the Kremlin is using energy as a weapon, as a tool of manipulation of the Ukrainian politicians”, – said Payette.

Despite the fact that Ukraine is going to purchase gas from Gazprom, Payette does not see the dependence of Kiev on Russian gas.
