Russia and Ukraine have agreed to hold three-sided gas talks on September 6, but the two are waiting for the European Commission to agree as well, Energy Minister Alexander Novak told journalists."On September 6. We are waiting for the European Commission's response. Everything depends on the European Commission's plans. We agreed on this date with Ukraine back in Minsk," Novak said.
Asked what the likelihood was that the meeting would take place in this timeframe, he said that everyone is interested in renewing gas shipments so that there are no problems with gas supplies in the winter."In addition, he noted that at a meeting with Oettinger the transfer of the acceptance point of Russian gas to European consumers was not discussed.
