Russia ready for talks with Ukraine on gas transit, Putin says

SOCHI (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that Moscow was ready for talks with Ukraine on continued gas transits through the country.

Following talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the southern Russian city of Sochi, Putin said that the NordStream 2 gas pipeline project had nothing to do with politics and that he considered it exclusively a commercial project.
