BELGRADE, March 27 (Itar-Tass) – Gazprom CEO Gazprom Alexei Miller has signed two agreements on the supplies of Russia’s natural gas to Serbia in the period up to 2021, the government’s press service said on Wednesday.
Director of Russia’s Yugorosgaz Vladimir Koldin put his signature to the first document, which Srbijagaz Director General Dusan Bajatovic put his signature to the second documents.
According to the documents signed, Serbia got the guarantees of annual supplies of up to five billion cubic metres of natural gas from Russia.
