Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has said that Russia is still reluctant to revise its contracts on natural gas supplies with Ukraine.

"Russia's position is very simple – the 2009 agreement is signed, its duration is 10 years, and everything has been discussed: the price of gas, the cost of transit, and supplies," the premier said during a hotline conference with the readers of the Komsomolskaya Pravda v Ukraine newspaper in Kyiv on Monday.

"We have halved gas consumption – this is our answer to our partners," he said.

The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. 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/. The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
