Russia, EU sign gas monitoring deal
"Let's sign and we will immediately go to Kiev to ask the same of the Ukrainian side.
Russia and the European Union signed a gas monitoring deal on Saturday, which is meant to allow the resumption of gas supplies to Europe via Ukraine after a cut-off lasting days.
A Reuters reporter at the scene said the document was signed by Russia's First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin and officials from the European Union.
"Let's sign and we will immediately go to Kiev to ask the same of the Ukrainian side, and so we will end the crisis," Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek, representing the EU presidency, said during the signing ceremony.
No further details were immediately available.
