Medvedev: changing Ukraine gas deals "irresponsible"
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday said it would be "irresponsible" to change existing gas supply contracts between Russia and Ukraine, according to Reuters.
"We have signed a treaty this year for 10 years ... I think that proposals to change them are irresponsible," Medvedev said in comments broadcast live on television channel Vesti-24. "Despite talk that something is happening, that the (Ukrainian) president is not working, the Ukrainians are paying every month and this makes me happy," Medvedev said.
