The trilateral talks on the supplies and transit of the Russian gas through Ukraine to the EU will take place on September 19 in Brussels, as Radio Liberty correspondent Rikard Jozwiak reported on Twitter.
“According to sources, the gas trialogue between the European Commission, Ukraine, and Russia in Brussels will take place on September 19,” Jozwiak wrote.
Earlier the Ukrainian side stated it was ready to participate in the trilateral negotiations on Russian gas supply and transit through Ukraine to the EU in September 2019.
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.
