Ukraine's Yushchenko to meet Polish president

Ukraine's Yushchenko to meet Polish president

Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko will meet with his Polish counterpart about the halt in natural gas supplies amid a dispute between Ukraine and Russia.
Russia last week stopped sending gas through Ukrainian pipelines. The stoppage has affected more than 15 European countries.
Yushchenko has accused Russia of using the dispute to try to wrest control of Ukraine's 23,000-mile (37,000-kilometer) gas pipeline network.
Yushchenko will meet President Lech Kaczynski on Wednesday in the southern Polish city of Wisla.
Kaczynski has been a strong supporter of Ukraine's pro-Western course under Yushchenko, a path that has strained ties with Russia. Poland is also a key transit country for Russian gas.
