Vice-President of the European Commission Maros Sefcovic stated in Brussels on Thursday, that the next gas supply contract between Moscow and Kiev should be based on the European Union legal system, following the trilateral gas talks in Belgium.

"We have clearly described to Russian delegation how Ukraine is gradually implementing European law and energy rules, and we agreed that the future contract must respect all European regulations in this matter," he highlighted.

The Vice-President went on to say that the discussion between the Russian and Ukrainian energy ministers will resume "on bilateral levels" and the next trilateral meeting is scheduled for the end of October.
