MOSCOW, April 15. /ITAR-TASS/. The CEO of Russia’s gas monopoly Gazprom, Alexei Miller, and European Energy Commissioner Gunther Oettinger have expressed hope that Ukraine’s state energy company Naftogaz Ukrainy will continue to fulfil its contractual obligations to transit Russian gas to European countries.
Miller and Oettinger considered issues of Russian natural gas supplies to Europe, noting that Gazprom was a reliable provider of gas to the European market and should remain it in future. Particular attention was paid to Naftogaz Ukrainy’s debt for gas, which has grown to above $2.2 billion.
