When Moldova and Ukraine joined the Energy Community in May 2010 and February 2011 respectively, they committed themselves to adopting and implementing a series of European Union directives relating to gas, electricity, renewable energy and environmental protection. Although the deadline for implementing most of these measures has passed (at the end of 2010 in the case of Moldova, and this January for Ukraine), it is Chisinau which has made some progress, mainly in the electricity sector, whereas Kyiv has failed to meet fully a single one of its obligations.

Some details of the negotiations were revealed on 26 September by the Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, according to whom Russia has agreed to cut gas prices for individual consumers in Ukraine, in exchange for reducing the rates for the transit of Russian gas to cost level. Moscow and Kyiv have agreed to create a Ukrainian-Russian-EU consortium to manage Ukraine's gas transit pipelines. The head of Gazprom, Alexey Miller, said that the parties had indeed made progress in negotiations but many issues remained unconfirmed yet.
