Ukraine has signed a fresh copy of a gas transit monitoring agreement and removed earlier conditions, Russian gas export monopoly Gazprom said on Monday, according to Reuters.

"A Gazprom delegation conducted negotiations this morning in Kiev. As a result of the negotiations, the Ukrainian side signed .. (the agreement) without any conditions whatsover," the Russian firm said in a statement.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Sunday declared the monitoring deal null and void because Ukraine had added conditions to which Russia objected.
