      I'm afraid that you can not restore them. The only option is if you have a backup of the AppData folder or of the main.db file. Do you have it?

        When i close my account i leave all my contacts in "recent chat" so after i deleted them they appear to me as "pending contact request". And I left it this way. I thought it would be enough but after 3-4 months "recent chat" disappear. I have whole folder with main.db of this day. And when i sign in i see my contacts for 1-2 min but they start disappear and my list is empty. I can see only contacts who never accept me.

          Try the following using the classic version (for example,
          1) Close Skype (but don't log out).
          2) Disconnect your computer from the Internet.
          3) Replace the new main.db with the older one.
          4) Start Skype (you have to see spinning status and all your old contacts).
          5) Go to Skype → Contacts → Advanced → Backup Contacts to File → Save “username.vcf”.
          6) Connect your computer to the Internet.
          7) Wait until Skype stops spinning and your contacts disappear.
          8) Go to Skype → Contacts → Advanced → Import Contacts from File → Open “username.vcf”.
