The meeting took place on the eve of presidential elections in Ukraine in May last year. Firtash noted that he initiated the meeting with the goal of preventing the presidency of Yuliia Tymoshenko.
"The main thing is that we got what we wanted (from the meeting - ed.): Poroshenko became president, Klychko became mayor (of Kyiv - ed.)," Firtash said.
The oligarch noted that the details of the meeting are confidential.
Firtash said that he has long been Tymoshenko's opponent, believing that she only desires the office and power, from which Ukraine loses. He called the gas market "first major loss" of Ukraine, adding that "the second loss was the Crimea."
