Gazprom Not to Revise Gas Contract with Ukraine

November 26, 2013

Gazprom is not revising the current gas contract with Ukraine, Ukrinform reported on November 25, citing Gazprom spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov as telling BBC Russian.

The official representative of the Russian gas monopoly Gazprom said that there were no plans to change gas contracts with Ukraine.

Kupriyanov also said that he knew nothing about the promises given to the Ukrainian government. "We are not commenting on this," Kupriyanov said.

Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said in an interview with the ICTV television channel on Sunday that Moscow promised to revise the gas price after Kyiv halted preparations for the signing of an association agreement with the European Union.
