You're reading: Azarov says gas contract 2009 unique – Ukraine lost everything

Ukrainian Premier Mykola Azarov has said that Ukraine lost everything it could when the 2009 gas contracts were signed.

“The contract for gas supplies Ukraine and Russia signed in 2009 is
one of those rare cases when one side gets everything it wanted, while
the other side – Ukraine – loses everything it could lose in the
agreement,” the premier said in an interview with Ukrainian TV channels
on Friday.

“Such cases are unique. They show that the government that signed
such an agreement was unable to stand for its position. Compromise can
always be found in all other cases,” Azarov said.
