KIEV, October 8. /TASS/. Kiev has sent proposals to the European Commission on resolving the long-term gas dispute with Russia, Ukraine’s Energy Minister Yuriy Prodan said on Wednesday.
“We sent them already on Monday (October 6),” Prodan said after a government meeting.
Prodan stressed that the Ukrainian side “is not obliged to send its proposals” on this issue to Russia. “We are sending them to the European Commission, and the European Commission is likely to coordinate them with the Russian side,” the Ukrainian minister said.
Prodan did not specify the date for the next round of the trilateral gas negotiations between Ukraine, Russia and the EU. He earlier said the sides could discuss the price of Russian natural gas and gas supplies to Ukraine in Brussels or Berlin.
Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Tuesday he expects the date for the gas talks to be specified within two days.
Russia stopped gas flows to Ukraine in June due to an unsettled dispute over debt and gas prices. As of August 1, the overall debt of Naftogaz to Gazprom for supplied gas totaled about $5.3 billion.
