KIEV, March 13 (Itar-Tass) — Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov has declared that the existing gas contracts with Russia have a negative impact on the relations between the two countries, he told journalists during an inspection visit to two metro stations named Ippodrom and Teremki which are under construction in Kiev.
The sides will continue the difficult gas talks, Azarov said. "We hope that the realization of the injustice of the gas contract and its negative impact on bilateral relations and a destructive effect on the economy will eventually prompt our partners to agree to a compromise,“ Azarov said.
Azarov noted that the money Ukraine paid to Gazprom for gas supplied in February 2012 (around 1.3 billion dollars -Tass comment) would be sufficient to build a new metro line in Kiev.
