Kiev and Moscow in gas deadlock
05-22-2009 - Upstream OnLine - Russia and Ukraine failed to reach a decision on the issue of Ukraine's gas storage, Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko said after talks today with her Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. "There has been no decision worked out on this yet," Tymoshenko said. "But I believe that we will find a compromise." "I'm sure we will find mutual understanding on how to pump gas into storage, because it's very important for the European Union, for Ukraine and for all who consume Russian gas," Reuters quoted Tymoshenko as saying earlier in the day. "I'm sure that we can resolve this issue," she said.
