BRUSSELS Jan 28 Russian President Vladimir
Putin said on Tuesday it would honour its obligations to lend
Ukraine $15 billion and reduce its gas prices even if the
opposition formed the next government.
"Regarding you question whether we will review our
agreements on loans and the energy sector if the opposition will
take power ... No, we will not," Putin told a news conference
after talks with European Union leaders in Brussels.
The loan was to "support the people of Ukraine, not the
government. It's the people, the common people that suffer,"
