KIEV, November 23 (Itar-Tass) - Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov has dismissed reports his country had suspended preparations for signing an agreement of association with the European Union under pressures from Russia.
“This is not exactly what happened in reality,” Azarov said in the Shuster Live talk show on the Inter television news channel on Friday.
In response to rumours Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich had allegedly told his Lithuanian counterpart Dalia Gribauskaite he was under pressure from Russia, Azarov said he was ignorant of the content of that conversation.
“I do not think our president said anything like that,” he added.
