Medvedev doubts Ukraine will exist as a country in about two years

Ukraine may disappear from the map of the world in two years, Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council said commenting on Kyiv's request to Washington to supply liquefied natural gas supplies on conditions of post-payment in two years.

"Who said that Ukraine will exist on the world map in two years at all? Although the Americans don't care much — they have invested a lot in the anti-Russia project that everything else is nothing for them,” Medvedev wrote on his Telegram channel.

Earlier, Foreign Policy reported with reference to the head of Naftogaz, Yuriy Vitrenko, that Ukraine had offered the United States a lend-lease agreement under which the United States would provide Ukraine with 6 billion cubic meters of fuel. Under the terms of the agreement, the LNG would be delivered to Europe and then to Ukraine. Kyiv said that it would be able to pay for the fuel after it would increase domestic gas production. According to Vitrenko, the proposal was well received by the US presidential administration.

Prior to that, Vitrenko said in an interview with Bloomberg that Ukraine would have to import gas in the amount of up to $8 billion to satisfy the domestic demand. Vitrenko noted that Kyiv had already discussed this issue with Washington.

In early March, the Ukrainian Ministry of Energy banned natural gas exports due to hostilities in the country. On June 13, the government of Ukraine banned exports of coal, fuel oil and gas produced in the country.
