MOSCOW, June 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and Ukraine will resume bilateral gas negotiations this weekend, Reuters reported Friday, citing a government source.
“The negotiations will last through Saturday, Sunday and Monday. We expect the decision to surface on Tuesday,” the source said.
Ukraine plans to redeem its whole debt for 2013 at the next round of talks, he said.
On Tuesday, Gazprom and Naftogaz of Ukraine agreed to negotiate bilaterally, without further mediation by the EU. Ukraine insists on the recalculation of its debt for the gas supplied in 2013 on the basis of a discounted price of $268.5 per 1,000 cubic meters for January-March.
