KIEV, Dec 11 (Reuters) - Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said on Wednesday that the issue of joining a customs union with Russia would be not raised in talks later this month in Moscow.

Speaking to his cabinet, Azarov said: "We are preparing a lot of documents for the meeting of the Russian/Ukrainian state commission, which will take place on Dec. 17. But I want to end the speculation immediately and say that there will be no talks about the customs union." (Reporting by Natalia Zinets, Writing by Elizabeth Piper, Editing by Timothy Heritage)
