Ukraine says Russia has cut off all gas supplies to Kiev.

This comes after the two sides failed to reach a deal on Sunday in the ongoing dispute over natural gas supply and pricing.

But the European Union energy chief, Guenther Oettinger, who also took part in the talks, says he still holds hope for future talks.

"I will check in next days what is the best next step and how and when we should come together again, and I think with some more flexibility, with some readiness to be flexible, we should come and we could come to solution."

The month-long dispute has been focusing on how much Ukraine should pay for past natural gas deliveries and the price of possible future supplies.

And a possible cut of supply has been suggested by analysts if still no compromise can be reached.

The dispute is part of wider tensions after Russia annexed Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula in March.
