The gas conditions Russia proposed to Ukraine are same as they were under the Viktor Yanukovych government and the Russian government should develop measures, which will freeze the proposed discount for some time, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

"I would ask the government and prime minister to think about how these conditions could be stipulated at the government level or upon an agreement with the Ukrainian government and make them absolutely reliable and unchanging for some time," Putin said at a meeting with government members.

The conditions proposed by Russia's Gazprom to Kiev are "absolutely the same conditions, which the government of Viktor Fyodorovych Yanukovych had," Putin said.
