Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov noted that next Monday complex negotiations with the Russian Federation will be over.

He stated this in his speech in the Yevropeiska Square in Kiev, where the rally in support of the authorities is held, ForUm correspondent reports.

"For 3.5 years, we have finally agreed to sign a treaty, which will make possible effective operation of our aerospace, metallurgical and engineering industries," he said.

As the Prime Minister stressed, Ukraine needs to restore economic and trade relations with Russia.
"Our economy was knocked down by the high price for Russian gas: for three years we overpaid 20 billion dollars, which is two-thirds of the annual budget of the Pension Fund. We could not tolerate it any more. Why should we pay the highest gas price in Europe?"-Azarov asked rhetorically.

In addition, he refuted allegations that Ukraine intends to sign the agreement on accession to the Customs Union.
