BERLIN, March 13. /ITAR-TASS/. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she did not expect Russia to restrict gas supplies despite the crisis in Ukraine.
“We have signed agreements. Until now, Russia has supplied gas,” the German chancellor said in an interview with Passauer Neue Presse.
“Even in the times of the Cold War, Russia was a reliable supplier,” she said, adding that “Russia has its own economic interests.”
“We receive 35% of gas from Russia, and this does not make us dependent,” Merkel said.
