KIEV, September 27 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine hopes to finalise negotiations with Russia on revision of the gas contracts in October of the current year, Ukraine’s Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov told reporters on Tuesday.
The government sets an objective “to finalise in October negotiations with the Russian side on revision of the gas contracts,” he said.
Azarov stressed that the Russian side “has been following a rather constructive position in the negotiations.”
He expressed hope that with new agreements new gas prices for Ukraine may be effective from 2012 already.
“We should enter the year 2012 with confidence on these extremely important matters as gas price, terms of supplies and gas transportation,” Azarov said. “We cannot enter a new year with the uncertainty we had past year.”
