The European Union expects a mutually acceptable solution from Russia in the issue of gas supplies to Ukraine.
European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said this in a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Radio Liberty reported.
"We also expect that rapid and decisive progress can be achieved in the trilateral gas talks towards a mutually acceptable interim solution for the upcoming winter period, on the basis of the compromise elements set out by the European Commission. It is key that the resumption of energy deliveries to the citizens of Ukraine is ensured and that the fulfillment of all contractual obligations with customers in the EU is secured," Barroso said.
Barroso also warned Putin against introducing new trade barriers, noting that this would contravene the agreed joint conclusions and the decision to delay the provisional application of the trade related part of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement.
