Negotiations between the Russian gas holding Gazprom and Naftogaz of Ukraine on the natural gas price must be commercial and depoliticized, press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.
"The Kremlin cannot be involved in the matter of commercial negotiations. This is what Gazprom is holding with Ukrainian counterpart," Peskov said.
"Negotiations in this case should be absolutely depoliticized and commercial by nature. We always maintain such an approach," he added.
