MOSCOW, September 2 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian government has not received any letters yet with proposals for inter-state talks on clearing up the terms of gas supplies to Ukraine, the Russian prime minister’s press-secretary Dmitry Peskov told Itar-Tass.
"We have not received the letter so far," he said.
Earlier, Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said that Kiev had dispatched an official letter to the Russian government with a proposal for holding interstate negotiations to clarify gas supplies to Ukraine.
"We have every reason to ask the government of Russia in accordance with the intergovernmental agreement of 2004 to hold talks on gas supplies and the conditions of transit. This message was sent," Azarov said.
In response to this statement by the Ukrainian prime minister Gazprom’s spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov said that the Ukrainian side had repeatedly raised the issue of revising the gas contracts with Russia.
“They always do this,” he said.
