USART Problem with nucleo L152

I'vegot an issue with using USART on Nucleo L152LE and need some help. Symptoms are: RX and TX pins are hardware connected, but reading from input register with USART_ReceiveData(USART1) returns zero instead of transmitted value. IDE is Atolic Lite with project settings coresponding to used board. I've tried both USART1 (PIO A, pins 9 and 10) and USART2 (PIO A, PINS 2 and 3) with the same result.

Here is initialization code for USART1:   
/* USART configuration structure for USART1 */
    USART_InitTypeDef USART1_init_struct;
    /* Bit configuration structure for GPIOA PIN9 and PIN10 */
    GPIO_InitTypeDef gpioa_init_struct;
     USART_ClockInitTypeDef  USART_ClockInitStructure;

     USART_ClockInit(USART1, &USART_ClockInitStructure);
    /* Enable clock for USART1, AFIO and GPIOA */
    RCC_AHBPeriphClockCmd(RCC_AHBPeriph_GPIOA, ENABLE);
    RCC_APB2PeriphClockCmd(RCC_APB2Periph_USART1, ENABLE);

    /* GPIOA PIN9 alternative function Tx */
    gpioa_init_struct.GPIO_Pin = GPIO_Pin_9;
    gpioa_init_struct.GPIO_Speed = GPIO_Speed_40MHz;
    gpioa_init_struct.GPIO_Mode = GPIO_Mode_AF;
       gpioa_init_struct.GPIO_OType = GPIO_OType_PP;
    GPIO_Init(GPIOA, &gpioa_init_struct);
    /* GPIOA PIN10 alternative function Rx */
    gpioa_init_struct.GPIO_Pin = GPIO_Pin_10;
    gpioa_init_struct.GPIO_Speed = GPIO_Speed_40MHz;
    gpioa_init_struct.GPIO_Mode = GPIO_Mode_IN;
       gpioa_init_struct.GPIO_OType = GPIO_OType_PP;
    GPIO_Init(GPIOA, &gpioa_init_struct);

      GPIO_PinAFConfig(GPIOA, GPIO_PinSource9|GPIO_PinSource10, GPIO_AF_USART1);

    /* Baud rate 9600, 8-bit data, One stop bit
     * No parity, Do both Rx and Tx, No HW flow control
    USART1_init_struct.USART_BaudRate = 9600;
    USART1_init_struct.USART_WordLength = USART_WordLength_8b;
    USART1_init_struct.USART_StopBits = USART_StopBits_1;
    USART1_init_struct.USART_Parity = USART_Parity_No ;
    USART1_init_struct.USART_Mode = USART_Mode_Rx | USART_Mode_Tx;
    USART1_init_struct.USART_HardwareFlowControl = USART_HardwareFlowControl_None;
    /* Configure USART1 */
    USART_Init(USART1, &USART1_init_struct);
    /* Enable USART1 */

    /* Enable RXNE interrupt */

And transmittion code:

int  UartWriteWithEcho(unsigned char *pBuf,unsigned DataLen)
     unsigned cnt;
     uint16_t RetVal;
     for(cnt=0; cnt<DataLen; cnt++)
          USART_SendData(USART1, pBuf[cnt]);

          while (USART_GetFlagStatus(USART1, USART_FLAG_TC) == RESET)
               //Do nothing. Just wait
          if( (unsigned char)RetVal!= pBuf[cnt]) //Checking echo is correct
               return 0;
     return 1;

Would anyone be so kind to point me what is wrong?
