“Pleased that the second round of political trilateral talks with Russia and Ukraine on the long-term transit of gas to Europe will take place in Brussels on 21 January. The meeting will build on the progress achieved during previous political and expert rounds,” European Commission’s Vice President in charge of the Energy Union Maroš Šefčovič tweeted.

As reported, the first round of talks in July, according to Šefčovič, was successful. Its main result was the launch of a new trilateral Ukraine-EU-Russia negotiation process on the transportation of Russian gas.

The current gas transit contract between the Naftogaz of Ukraine and Russian Gazprom is valid until 2019.
