President of Russia Vladimir Putin and President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky are planning to discuss the gas contract during a Normandy format meeting in Paris on December 9. This was stated by the Spokesman of the President of Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov, TASS reports.
According to Peskov, a two-way process is now underway, as it was agreed by the presidents during a recent telephone conversation.
"If there remain some problematic issues that have not been negotiated, the presidents will be able to use the meeting in Paris, where they will have the opportunity to communicate with each other in order to "touch" the gas issue," Peskov said.
Peskov, in turn, refused to answer the question about the possible price of Russian gas for Ukraine.
"In the course of commercial negotiations, it would be wrong and unreasonable to talk about some figures from the outside while not being the negotiating party," he said.
As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky claimed his readiness for negotiations in different formats and for a bilateral meeting with the President of Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. Zelensky stated this during the briefing with the President of Lithuania Gitanas Nausėda, Interfax informed.
