"The best way for Ukraine and the EU is to synchronize the Ukrainian electricity sector with the European one", said the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk on Tuesday, March 1, at a meeting with the Vice-President of the European Commission for the Energy Union Maroš Šefčovič.

The Prime Minister reminded about ideas of creating direct current links between Ukrainian and European electricity sectors: "This is an outdated Russian idea which I strongly oppose".

"We need together to grab the plan of how, in the most speedy way, to make the Ukrainian electricity sector an integral part of the European one", said Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

The Prime Minister of Ukraine stressed that such a step depends on the political will: "I have the political will to make Ukraine a part of big Europe. If Ukraine has signed the FTA and should become an integral part of the big economic space of the EU, so it clearly envisages that the energy sector is to be an integral part too".
