Ukraine will achieve revision of the gas agreement with Russia.
It was declared by the prime minister Mykola Azarov, opening meeting of Cabinet of Ministers.
He noted that under the "enslaving" agreement, concluded in January 2009, "gas price was determined by a formula which provided quarterly increase of the price".
"So in the first quarter of the current year we received gas on 330 dollars for one thousand cubic meter and quarterly the price raised approximately by 25 dollars. That is in the 4th quarter it will make about 390 dollars for one thousand cubic meter", - the prime minister told.
"This formula continues to work. It is the fact which can't be disproved. Such price would mean accident for economy and the people of Ukraine", - Azarov emphasized.
"And only the Kharkov agreements signed by presidents of Ukraine and Russia, allowed to reduce gas price for 100 dollars for one thousand cubic meter and to make ends meet", - he noted.
"We set as the purpose to revise the extremely unprofitable agreement for Ukraine with the Russian Federation and we will persistently convince our Russian partners of need it to make", - the prime minister emphasized.
