The only mechanism to ensure the transit of gas to the EU and stability of gas supplies to Ukraine is a tripartite Protocol between Ukraine, the EU and Russia and an Annex to the current deal between NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine and Gazprom similar to the contract signed last year, said Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk following the meeting with Prime Minister of the Republic of Lithuania Algirdas Butkevičius on Friday, August 28.

The Head of Ukraine’s Government noted the meeting with Algirdas Butkevičius concerned energy issues. Arseniy Yatsenyuk stressed that Lithuania "has passed quite a serious test of energy independence": "Both you and us have managed to reduce the influence of Russian Gazprom on our economies and our energy sectors."

Arseniy Yatsenyuk informed that the day before a Ukrainian Government team had had a meeting with our European partners, in particular with European Commissioner for Energy Maroš Šefčovič: "We believe that the only mechanism to ensure gas transit to the European Union and stability of gas supplies to Ukraine is a mechanism similar to the one signed last year between the European Union, Ukraine and Russia".
