Ukraine has given Russia strong arguments to reassess the price formula for gas, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said in the air of “Ukraine” TV channel.

"We have shown Russia that in accordance with Tymoshenko’s formula Ukraine pays for gas more than Germany or Poland. Is this normal? Does it fit into our strategic partnership? So, President's and Government’s arguments are very serious this time. And in the largest accounts, Russia will have to agree with us," Azarov said.

The Head of Government stressed that former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, signing enslaving for Ukraine gas contracts, exceeded her authority and cause a huge loss. "She certainly exceeded her powers. She had no right to give such instructions. And she certainly her actions caused huge losses," he pointed out.

Mykola Azarov stressed that Ukraine would reach an agreement with Russia to revise the gas price formula exclusively through negotiations without resorting to judicial pressure.

The Prime Minister informed that according to the recent visit of the Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Yuriy Boyko to Moscow, first "meaningful results" were achieved, and after the May holidays, negotiations will continue.
