Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak held a working meeting with German Government’s Special Commissioner for Gas Transit through Ukraine Georg Graf Waldersee.

They discussed pressing issues of Russian-German trade and economic cooperation. Cooperation in the energy sector is a strategic partnership and is pivotal for Russia’s interaction with the EU, Alexander Novak pointed out during the meeting. “Germany was, is and will remain Russia’s key European partner in the fuel and energy sector,” Mr Novak said.
