Russia and Ukraine could reach agreement today on a resumption of gas deliveries, given the signing of the documents that the sides discussed late last night, Energy Minister Alexander Novak told Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev at a government meeting.
The documents concerned include two protocols - between Russia and Ukraine and between the European Commission and Ukraine - and a technical supplement to the contract between Gazprom and Naftogaz Ukrainy.
If the documents are ready for signing, as was agreed by the parties, they could be signed today, Novak said.
European Commissioner for Energy Gunther Oettinger has not confirmed if the EU was ready to help Ukraine pay for its debt and for supplies of Russian gas
