At the meeting with executive director of Global fund Michael Kazachkin, Ukraine's PM Mykola Azarov declared that the gas price in Ukraine is five times higher than in the U.S.

"Extremely disadvantageous agreement on gas supply from Russia is still in force. The gas price in the U.S is 99 dollars per a thousand cu m and in Ukraine, without account of Kharkiv discount, is 516 dollars per a thousand cu m. Just think about it for a minute. It is five times higher," Azarov said.

According to the PM, it is additional one billion dollars of monthly payments of Russia. In Azarov's opinion, these means could have been used for healthcare and social needs, including the fight against HIV/AIDS.
