Russia Agrees to Review Ukraine Gas Contract

Russia has agreed to look again at Kiev’s arguments regarding the 2009 gas delivery contract signed between the two nations, and will return to talks on the issue soon, Ukraine’s Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said on Thursday.

“Russia’s leaders have agreed to seriously look again at the Ukrainian side’s arguments concerning the delivery of Russian gas, and return to talks in the near future on reviewing the contract which has presented Ukraine with such unequal conditions,” Azarov said.

Ukraine has sought a revision of the deal since 2010, but all previous negotiations between the two states have been deadlocked.
