Russia says it is ready for constructive gas talks with EU, Ukraine

BRUSSELS, Sept 19 (Reuters) - Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said that Russia was ready for constructive three-way gas talks with Ukraine and the European Union in Brussels on Thursday.

The Russia-Ukraine gas transit agreement is due to expire in January and Ukrainian energy authorities are worried that Moscow could stop gas supplies through Ukraine, leaving some Ukrainian regions without gas in winter.

“We’re ready for constructive talks,” Novak said ahead of the talks. (Reporting by Vladimir Soldatkin; writing by Tom Balmforth; Editing by Toby Chopra)
