KHANTY-MANSIYSK, September 9. /TASS/. Russia and the European Commission are due to discuss in Vienna on September 11 the allocation of funds to Ukraine by Brussels for purchasing Russia's natural gas, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak has told reporters.
"Of course," Novak said answering a question whether the sides plan to discuss at the meeting the allocation of funds to Ukraine.
Last week, Novak confirmed that a bilateral gas meeting with the European Commission’s vice president in charge of energy, Marosh Shefchovich, will be held in Austria’s capital on September 11.
The next trilateral gas meeting may take place in late September.
The European Commission has sent to both Ukrainian and Russian colleagues a document outlining the key issues that need to be discussed, namely the pricing formula with a discount and the minimum amount of gas purchases and their financing.
