    'Normandy Four' leaders discussed gas deliveries to Ukraine during summit in Paris in the context of previous agreements on the issue, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko held five-hour talks in Paris earlier in the day focused on Ukrainian reconciliation.

    "The gas issue was also discussed but in the context of documents that had been initialed by Ukraine and signed by Russia," Peskov told reporters.

    "The Ukrainian side pledged [to sign these documents]. We hope that we have managed to reach agreements which satisfy all sides concerned," Peskov added.

    According to agreements reached at trilateral Russia-EU-Ukraine talks in Brussels on September 25, Ukraine will buy 2 billion cubic meters of Russian gas as part of the so-called 'winter package' with a $20 discount for every 1,000 cubic meters.
