Dmitry Firtash: the time of quick money gone forever

Dmitry Firtash is one of Ukraine's most enigmatic capitalists. He has no heart for publicity. He rarely goes on the record. It was his particularly puzzling action for the Ukrainian public when in 2006 he arranged a scheme to supply natural gas from Central Asia to Ukrainian consumers at a price below $250/1000ì3 the price he actually paid for this gas to Russia's Gazprom when buying it at the Ukrainian-Russian border.
