Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has said she is not holding any negotiations with Russia on dropping a criminal case against her.

"I am not holding any negotiations on this score, and I am not seeking any agreements," Tymoshenko said in an interview published in the Saturday issue of Dzerkalo Tyzhnya (The Mirror of the Week) newspaper.

"I just want everybody to realize that the phase of election rivalry has ended. All elements of election techniques should remain in the past. Both Ukraine and Russia should understand now that an absolutely new history of our relations has begun. Certainly, it is necessary to get adapted to this," Tymoshenko said, adding that adaptation is not always smooth.

"But I want this period to pass as easily as possible. As head of the Ukrainian government, I am definitely a partner of Russia. Definitely. I want everything in our relations to be nice and beneficial to both countries. But this calls for reciprocal desire," she said.
