ODESA, OCTOBER, 8th, 2009, CONTEXT-PRICHERNOMORIE – Prime-Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko stated berth No 16 no belonging to the State Property Fund of Ukraine may be handed over to the Yuzhny Port via court only, Context-Prichernomorie correspondent reports.

As a number of central media inform, Yulia Tymoshenko stated it yesterday at the Governmental meeting on the issues of development of Ukrainian ports.

“If we now make governmental decision (to hand the berth to the port of Yuzhny. – Edit.) there will be another reason for applying to court.
