Ukraine Sees Gas Talks With Russia, EU Within 2 Weeks

Ukraine and Russia will probably meet within two weeks for the next round of European Union-brokered talks to resolve a natural-gas dispute before winter, Ukrainian Energy Minister Yuri Prodan said.

The EU, which depends on Russian gas piped through Ukraine for about 15 percent of its demand, proposed an interim deal at negotiations last week to restore flows from Moscow-based OAO Gazprom to NAK Naftogaz Ukrainy before the heating season.
