Ukraine Still Mulling Union

Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said Friday that Kiev is still considering joining the customs union between Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus, Interfax reported.

"We are tracking how it's working very closely, and we have practically all the information about what has a positive effect and what has a negative one. And we are not ruling out the possibility of joining the customs union," Azarov said.

Azarov also said a solution will be found this year regarding gas prices, over which Russia and Ukraine have been deadlocked. "In 2011 we made do, but in 2012 we have set ourselves the goal of solving this problem," he said, Interfax reported.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
