KIEV (AFP) - Russia has offered Ukraine a "discount" of US$100 (S$125) per thousand cubic m of gas but Kiev has rejected the deal and is seeking a formal change to the rate set in the two sides' contract, Ukraine's Prime Minister said.

"We know these Russian games: A discount is set by a Russian government decision and rescinded by a Russian government decision. Our position remains the same - we want a change to the contract," Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said.
