PM Yekhanurov declares that Ukraine will be supplied with gas in full measure. He also mentioned that there is enough volume of gas in Ukraine’s store-houses for industry to work till the corresponding documents have been signed by both parts. The same time he stressed that existent contacts will be in force until the new ones have been signed.

Bloc Our Ukraine headed by Victor Yushchenko will lose the coming elections, the Director of Political Researches, the Chairman of the National Civil Council on International affairs, the Member of the Public Chamber of Russian Federation Sergey Markov told.

“Yushchenko will lose the elections. According to the recent public opinion polls, he shares the second and the third places with Yulia Timoshenko. They hate each other and hardly could form the coalition,” said he in Moscow press conference.

According to the poll conducted by the Kyiv Mohylyanska Academy, the Party of Regions is supported by 26.6% of Ukrainians, BYuT – 16.2%, Bloc Our Ukraine – 15.2%. The poll was held on December 9-20, 2017 people in 110 towns were interviewed.

According to Popov, there are 70 civil organizations and 24 out of them handed the applications to the Committee. The rules of the registration for the observers provide for two-year existence of the organizations and its statute must include corresponding tasks for the observation.
