A new gas crisis between Russia and Ukraine appears to have been averted – at least for now.

At talks in Brussels the two countries have agreed to stick to a current supply deal, with more talks before the end of the month.

EU Commission Vice-President Maros Sefcovic told reporters:
“I am satisfied that we managed to safeguard the full application of the Winter Package for the supply needs in Ukraine.

“We also agreed to take up trilateral negotiations on the follow-up to the Winter Package.

“I am reassured that the supply of gas to the EU markets remains secure.”

The question over supplies to the rebel-held Donetsk and Luhansk regions in eastern Ukraine was also discussed.

The parties agreed to review the matter at a later date, to allow time to consider the complexities involved.
