“As a reliable transiter Naftogaz sees its duty in warning European partners about the likely risks and suggests addressing the problem though joint efforts at trilateral talks,” the company said in a news release on Wednesday.
The European Commission had invited Russia to hold bilateral talks on August 29. According to the EC, Russia agreed with the date. The Energy Ministry made an official statement, however, the date was “preliminary.”
A three-party meeting involving Ukraine is to be held after the EC is back to work from vacation in September.
Naftogaz on August 11 said that the transit of gas across Ukraine to Europe in case of restrictions imposed for Russian companies may be carried out by those entities which are outside sanctions and have concluded direct contracts with Naftogaz.
