Russia has agreed to revise its gas contract with Ukraine, according to the Ukrainian prime minister Mykola Azarov.

“We have finally managed to reach and agreement with Russia on reviewing the contract,” he said.

It follows weekend talks between the two countries’ officials and senior energy officials.

The former Soviet republic has been pressing Moscow for months to review a previous deal it says made gas supplies from Russia far too expensive.
