Russia and the European Union are aware of the need to resume the Energy Dialog, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said after meeting with Vice President of the European Commission (EC) Maros Sefcovic Monday.

"The agenda of trilateral talks will first of all focus on the "winter package" implementation. 4 months have passed since the moment of signing of the three-sided Binding Protocol so we can strike the balance," he said.

This is the first meeting of the kind since October 31, 2014. Back then the sides agreed the terms for "winter package" gas supplies to Ukraine on condition of prepayment for the period ending on March 31, 2015.
