Negotiations on the transit of gas via Ukraine after 2019, which took place in Brussels on January 21 at the ministerial level of Ukraine, Russia and the leadership of the European Commission, ended in almost nothing. They lasted only about 40 minutes, instead of the planned 3 hours.

As one of the representatives of the Ukrainian delegation told Ukrainian News Agency, the Russian side, which was represented, inter alia, by Gazprom head Alexey Miller and Energy Minister Alexander Novak, rather toughly and uncompromisingly offered the only option - to extend the gas transit contract valid from 2009 after 2019, even without any consultations.
