Today, on December 20, trilateral negotiations on gas transit will continue in Minsk. The European Commission will participate in the negotiations online.
"We adhere to our position, regardless of the place of negotiations, of the situation, we will defend the interests of Ukrainians. We need to get a fair payment for gas transit and to ensure energy security in the region. Every final consumer will benefit from this because the continuation of the contract for the transit of gas will contribute to stability in the market and, consequently, to a gas price decrease", Minister of Energy and Environmental Protection of Ukraine Oleksiy Orzhel stressed.
It should be noted that a recent round of trilateral gas talk was held on December 19, in Berlin. The sides reached an agreement in principle on the details of the new gas transit deal.
