Russian Federation will sign the contract on gas transit with Ukraine if it implements the European legislation until the end of 2019, as Interfax-Ukraine reported citing Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.

If it will not take place, “as is likely”, Russia is ready to extend the current contract.

However, the Russian president underlined that the gas transit through Ukraine should be economically viable.

The trilateral gas talks on the transit of the Russian gas through Ukraine took place in Brussels on September 19.

On January 21, 2019, the trilateral gas talks took place in Brussels. Then Russia reported that it is ready to extend the acting contracts on gas transit after 2019. Then Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin stated that the return of the contracts on Russian gas transit is impossible.

In April 2019, European Commission Vice President Maros Sefcovic reported that another round of the trilateral gas talks is planned for the end of May, after the election of the new president of Ukraine.

In June 2019, Ukraine, Russia, and the European Commission have agreed to hold the trilateral negotiations on the Russian gas transit across Ukraine's territory in September 2019.
