KIEV, March 22 (Itar-Tass) —— A regular meeting of the Ukrainian-Russian interstate commission will be held in late May, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said on Thursday.
According to Yanukovich, during his visit to Moscow on March 19-20, he met with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to discuss pressing issues of the Ukrainian-Russian relations, including the gas problem. He said along with the gas price problem, they raised issues of gas transit via Ukraine’s territory, and of stability and development of the country’s gas transport system. “We are gradually making progress in reaching a common understanding of approaches to the settlement of these issues,” Yanukovich said. The gas problem, he noted, will be on the agenda of the interstate commission meeting.
The Ukrainian president also noted that a working group led by Ukrainian Minister of Fuel and Energy Yuri Boiko and CEO of Russia’s gas monopolist Gazprom Alexei Miller continues negotiations.
