BRUSSELS, September 19. /ITAR-TASS/. A trilateral gas meeting between Russia, Ukraine and the European Union is scheduled to be held in Berlin on September 26, the press service of EU Energy Commissioner Guenter Oettinger said on Friday.

“I can confirm that the meeting will take place on September 26 in Berlin,” a spokesperson said.

Earlier on Friday, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak told reporters on the sidelines of the Sochi Investment Forum that both Ukraine and the European Union were satisfied with the new date for talks.

The Russian energy ministry has previously rejected EU proposal to hold a trilateral gas meeting on September 20, as this date coincides with the Sochi economic forum. Moscow has earlier proposed holding the meeting on September 6.

The previous discussions, launched on May 2, that involved EU Energy Commissioner Gunther Oettinger, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak and his Ukrainian counterpart Yuriy Prodan, ended on June 16 with no result.

Ukraine’s Naftogaz and Russian energy giant Gazprom later filed mutual claims to the Stockholm Arbitration Tribunal.

Ukraine currently does not receive Russian gas over an unsettled dispute over gas prices.

The Naftogaz oil and gas company stopped paying for the consumed Russian natural gas since March 25. As of August 1, the overall debt of Naftogaz to Gazprom for supplied gas totaled about $5.296 billion.
