Gazprom not revising gas contract with Ukraine

Gazprom is not revising the current gas contract with Ukraine, Gazprom spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov has told the 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.
