Dmitry Peskov, the Spokesperson of Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that Ukraine should exclude judicial claims from the agenda to reach the agreements on gas transit as TASS reported.

“The positions of Russia yesterday (during the trilateral consultations of Russia, EU and Ukraine, – 112.international) was outlined. Including, of course, the issue is that some judicial claims should not be included in the agenda if we talk about the agreement,” Peskov said.

As we reported, Russia is ready to extend the transit gas contract in case they will not be able to conclude a new contract upon the termination of the old one

Earlier Putin stated that the Russian Federation will sign the contract on gas transit with Ukraine if it implements the European legislation until the end of 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 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.
