BRUSSELS/KIEV (Reuters) - The European Commission said on Wednesday it is working on holding talks with Ukraine and Russia on a possible solution to Kiev's gas crisis, but no date has been set. Earlier Ukrainian Energy Minister Yuri Prodan said in Kiev that ministerial talks could be held in the Slovak capital of Bratislava on Thursday. However, a Commission spokeswoman said no meeting had been arranged for Thursday, although the European Union executive was ready for discussions as necessary and had responded positively to Russian President Vladimir Putin's suggestion that energy security talks should take place. "It is not foreseen that EU Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger attends any quadrilateral meeting with representatives of Ukraine, Russia and Slovakia tomorrow in Bratislava," the spokeswoman said.
