Ukraine should modernize the oil and gas sector…….Says Sherlock bloody Holmes!

December 14, 2009

Ukraine should modernize and reform its oil and gas sector in order to guarantee energy security, U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine John Tefft has said in an interview with the Dzerkalo Tyzhnia (Mirror Weekly) newspaper.

He said that a particular need for an effective fight against corruption arises during the economic crisis.

“Modernization and changes in the oil and gas sector are required for Ukraine to feel itself in energy security and have reliable access to fuel sources,” Tefft said.

He also stressed the importance of conducting economic reforms and an effective fight against corruption in order to tackle the consequences of the economic crisis.

“Our team in the U.S. embassy hopes for joint work and assistance to Ukraine even in a period when we all have to live through economic difficulties. The last, of course, will require from Ukraine’s leadership difficult budget decisions, the firm decisiveness to conduct economic reforms and the readiness to fight corruption at all levels and in all spheres of life,” Tefft said.



……….Errrrrm………Is there a Nobel Prize for stating the f*cking obvious?  If there is, then there is another sure fire, guaranteed winner from the US in the Nobel ranks!
