KIEV, June 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Gas talks at the Ministry of Coal Industry in Kiev on Saturday continued well into the night, ending at about 3 am Moscow time on Sunday without any result achieved, Russian Gazprom gas giant spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov told Tass.
The new date of the talks was not fixed, he added. Earlier reports said talks in Kiev ended at midnight and were to be continued on Sunday.
The deadline for Gazprom switching over to advance payment is 10:00 Moscow time June 16, when Gazprom should see 1.950 billion U.S. dollars from Naftogaz of Ukraine on its accounts as debt payment for November-December 2013 and April-May 2014.
