A new agreement between Ukraine and Russia should be valid until 2020, said Russian Ambassador to Ukraine Mikhail Zurabov.
"One should take into account that the agreement must be signed not for one year or two. Apparently, (it should be signed) for a period until 2020," he said at a briefing after voting in the Russian presidential election in Kyiv on Sunday.
What the two countries are preparing today are not just changes to a gas contract but an inter-governmental agreement, Zurabov said.

Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/
