BRUSSELS, September 4 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian permanent delegation in the European Union was notified about the fact that the European Commission launched an anti-monopoly investigation against Gazprom, but did not receive any official notification, the press service of the Russian diplomatic mission told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“At this stage it is premature to comment on this situation,” the press service reported. Meanwhile, a diplomatic source told Itar-Tass that “the claims of the European Commission will be analyzed thoroughly.”
The European Commission stated previously that it notified Gazprom about its decision. On Tuesday, the European Commission stated about the launch of an anti-monopoly investigation against the Russian gas major. The investigation should find out whether the Russian gas supplier Gazprom violates European rules of competition, particularly in the countries in Eastern and Central Europe, the European Commission said in the statement.
The European Commission also noted that the launch of the investigation does not mean that Gazprom will be found responsible for the foresaid violations. The European Commission does not intend to anticipate the results, but this case will be set a top priority, the statement runs.
