The Commission told both Gazprom and representatives of the Ukrainian authorities whom we met the same day that the European Commission does not desire to see any influence of this situation on supplies of gas which goes by transit through the Ukrainian territory to the EU,вЂќ the spokesman of the European Commission underscored.
Ferran Tarradellas Espuny reminded that the EU Energy Commissioner Andris Piebalgs has already urged Ukraine and Russia to find the long-term solution of the problem which repeats every time. Such a decision should be reached as fast as possible. The EU intends to welcome the decision on January 9 when the regular meeting of the EU group on gas supplies will take place, the spokesman said. He also noted that the group is supposed to estimate the development of the situation, he noted. Ferran Tarradellas Espuny said that on December 9, Gazprom's representative Sergey Kupriyanov met experts with the Directorate General of the European Commission for Trade.
