DAVOS, Switzerland -- Japan should withdraw from the Sakhalin oil and gas projects, Ukraine's first deputy prime minister told Nikkei Asia, adding that "values" should take precedence over profit. 

"Companies that have trade relations with Russia'' are providing the "money to kill Ukrainians," said Yulia Svyrydenko, on the sidelines of the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos. Svyrydenko also serves as the country's minister of economy.
