KIEV, October 12 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said there is no connection between gas talks with Russia and the case of former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko.
Azarov said that a revision of the current gas contracts with Russia is of paramount importance for Ukraine, but it is “absolutely not related to anything”.
“It exists for us all by itself because this is a question of paramount importance for us,” the prime minister said on Wednesday, October 12.
On October 11, Kiev’s Pechersky District Court sentenced Timoshenko to seven years in prison and upheld Naftogaz Ukrainy’s lawsuit seeking compensation of 1.516 billion hryvnia (189.5 million U.S. dollars) for damage sustained by the company as a result of the gas contracts signed with Russia in 2009.
