The trilateral negotiations on the natural gas price and Ukraine’s debt settlement had previously been attended by the heads of the energy agencies of Russia, the European Union and Ukraine – Alexander Novak, Gunther Oettinger and Yuriy Prodan. These consultations were launched on May 2 and yielded no result on Jun 16. After that Russia’s natural gas monopoly Gazprom and Ukraine’s oil and gas company Naftogaz filed counter lawsuits with the Stockholm Arbitration Court.
