Moscow, September 14 (Interfax) - Moscow would not want the gas dispute with Ukraine to be taken to international courts.
"I still believe in common sense. It is hardly reasonable to address some judicial instances in our relations with Ukraine. I think that everything can be settled on a bilateral level," a high-ranking Russian Foreign Ministry source told Interfax on Wednesday.

Earlier the Ukrainian side announced its readiness to address the Stockholm court of arbitration with the purpose of having gas agreements with Russia reviewed, if it fails to agree on the matter with Russia directly.
