LONDON (Reuters) - Ukrainian government representatives have no plans to meet with their Russian counterparts during the annual meeting of the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Kiev's deputy Finance Minister Artem Shevalev said on Wednesday.

Ukraine is grappling with pro-Russia separatist in its industrial eastern heartland and faces Moscow in London courts in a stand-off over a $3 billion eurobond that Kiev wants to be part of its debt restructuring.

"We have no plans to meet them," Shevalev told journalists on the sidelines of the EBRD meeting in London.

Asked if Kiev would like to meet with their Russian counterparts if possible, Shevalev said: "There are no plans at the moment."
