KRASNOYARSK, February 27. /TASS/. The Russian side will take part in the trilateral gas meeting in Brussels on March 2 that will discuss current gas supplies to Ukraine and ensuring its transit to the European Union, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak told journalists on Friday.
"Yes, I have confirmed my participation and we plan to discuss in Brussels a whole range of our mutual relations and namely the implementation of the October 31 Brussels agreements," Novak said.
The talks will focus on the so-called winter package and Russia-EU energy dialogue, as well as gas supplies to the war-torn eastern Ukrainian regions. "I think that this issue will be touched upon, of course," Novak told a TASS correspondent.
Earlier this week, Vice President of the European Commission Maros Sefcovic invited the energy ministers of Russia and Ukraine, Alexander Novak and Vladimir Demchishin, for the three-way gas meeting in Brussels.
