Poroshenko to touch upon Ukraine’s accession to Energy Union during EU-Ukraine Summit

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko is going to raise the issue of Ukraine's accession to the European Energy Union during the EU-Ukraine Summit on July 9.

"The EU-Ukraine Summit will be held on July 9. One of the issues we are currently preparing for this summit is that Ukraine should enter the Energy Union so that we would not be afraid of the Nord Stream 2 and would have a unified energy system with the entire Europe," Poroshenko said, speaking to students of the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

He also recalled that Ukraine had been living without Russian gas for two and a half years already. "Nobody blackmails us now," the Head of State noted.

As reported, the goal of the European Energy Union is to create a unified EU energy market and diversify energy supplies which would make the European Union less dependent on Russian gas.
