A trilateral gas meeting between Russia, Ukraine and the European Union is scheduled to be held in Berlin on September 26.
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 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.
