"Every aspect should be considered separately, based on the rules of international law. There is rule of law in Ukraine, and we'll not act similarly to Russia, but at the same time we'll take care of our interests. Russia will not enjoy transit through Ukraine's territory as if nothing has happened," Klimkin said.

The minister said the issue is being consulted upon with the EU. According to him, this is not a clear-cut issue. "There is also a transit to the European Union, to Moldova, because Moldova has its own enterprises in Russia," Klimkin said.
