Russia unlikely to sign Ukrainian version of power contract

Russia is unlikely to sign a contract with Ukraine on power supply to Crimea if Kyiv insists on a clause stipulating that the peninsula belongs to Ukraine, Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.

Russia is unlikely to sign a contract with Ukraine on power supply to Crimea if Kyiv insists on a clause stipulating that the peninsula belongs to Ukraine, Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Jan. 1.

"It can be assumed with a great degree of probability that the president will opt not to sign a contract on such terms," Peskov told Interfax in commenting on preliminary findings of a poll of Crimeans conducted by the VTsIOM public opinion survey service, which showed that an overwhelming majority of the local residents objected to concluding a power supply contract with Kyiv on such terms.
