VIENNA, June 3. /TASS/. Trilateral talks on gas issues at the ministerial level between Russia, the European Union and Ukraine are expected to be held after June 20, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak has told reporters.
At the meeting of experts on June 2 in Brussels there was no goal of taking a decision on the date for talks, he said.
"This was not the task of defining a date. They were due to work on the document, and we will define the date with [EU energy commissioner Maros] Sefcovic and [Ukrainian Energy Minister Vladimir] Demchishin," Novak said.
"Most likely, this will be after June 20," he said.
The trilateral meeting to discuss gas issues was due to be held before the end of June. Russia’s energy minister said earlier that there was no decision on granting a discount for gas to Ukraine for the third quarter and it was to be taken by the Russian government in June.
Russia granted a discount to Ukraine for gas worth $100 per 1,000 cubic meters for the second quarter of 2015 by extending the so-called winter package. The discounted price for Russian gas for Ukraine equals to $247.18 per 1,000 cubic meters for Q2.
