MOSCOW, June 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is not planning to resume before Monday the tripartite meetings on gas between the EU, Ukraine and Russia, a spokeswoman for the Energy Ministry Olga Golant told ITAR-TASS on Friday.
Earlier on Friday, the European Union’s Energy Commissioner Gunther Oettinger said he expected a dialogue with Moscow and Kiev in a telephone format on a new round of the tripartite gas negotiations.
On Monday, June 16, if the Ukrainian side fails to settle the overdue $1.9 billion for supplied gas by 10am, Russia will introduce a prepayment mechanism.
On Thursday, June 13, Gazprom’s CEO Alexei Miller said the company would not postpone any further the introduction of the prepayment terms. “No prepayment — no gas,” he said.
