"The trilateral talks on the transit of Russian gas through the territory of Ukraine under my chairmanship will be resumed as early as September," Shevchovich said, speaking before the deputies of the new European Parliament on the results of the EU summit meeting.
Earlier, the head of Gazprom’s legal department, Sergey Kuznets, said that the Russian company does not see today the possibility of concluding a transit contract with Naftogaz after 2019 on European terms because of the lack of readiness of the Ukrainian side.
On January 21, tripartite negotiations on the transit of gas from the Russian Federation to the European Union through Ukraine’s GTS ended in Brussels. Naftogaz and the European Commission insist on maintaining transit and signing a new agreement that complies with European energy legislation.
