Gazprom wants to keep RosUkrEnergo?

Ukraine`s energy minister said on Wednesday talks with Russia`s Gazprom about 2008 gas imports would continue as disagreement persisted over the RosUkrEnergo transit intermediary, which Gazprom wants to keep, Reuters report.

      Ukraine and Russia had said this month that they had agreed on 2008 gas prices and volumes and also to get rid of intermediaries, a key demand of Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.

      "There is a proposal from the Russian side for RosUkrEnergo to be present," Energy Minister Yuri Prodan told journalists.
