Gazprom's CEO holds talks with Naftogaz's Dubina

Both companies confirmed they met early Thursday

The heads of the Russian and Ukrainian gas companies have held an unexpected meeting in Moscow to discuss the dispute that has caused an energy crisis in Europe.

Both companies confirmed they met early Thursday but released no details. It was the first face-to-face meeting between Gazprom`s Alexei Miller and Naftogaz`s Oleh Dubina since talks over prices broke down New Year`s Eve.

The meeting was unexpected because both men are due in Brussels Thursday to meet with EU officials.

Gazprom stopped all gas shipments to Ukraine on Jan. 1 but kept supplies flowing to Europe through Ukraine`s pipelines until Wednesday, when all deliveries stopped.

The cutoff has left many European countries struggling to cope in the depths of winter.
