President Viktor Yanukovych had ceded to seal $15 billion of Russian financial aid and a one-third discount on energy imports.
Russia will cut the price it charges for natural gas to $268.50 from $400 per 1,000 cubic meters, President Vladimir Putin said after meeting Yanukovych in Moscow yesterday.
Putin also wanted to emphasize his ”goodwill” towards Ukraine, stating that the loan wont be conditioned by any austerity measures, as it happens with the IMF agreements.
The protesters are dissatisfied with the agreement because nobody knows what Ukraine will actually offer in exchange of all this ”free money”.
Is Ukraine preparing to enter the Russian Customs Union?
