BERLIN, September 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s gas contracts with partners in the European Union provide for no re-export options, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said in an interview with the German newspaper Handelsblatt, obviously meaning gas supplies from the European Union to Ukraine in the reverse regime.
“The contracts we have provide for no re-export. We hope our European partners will observe the contracts. Only this can guarantee uninterrupted gas supplies to European consumers,” the newspaper quotes him as saying.
On Thursday, three-party gas consultations involving Russia, Ukraine and the European Union will be held in Berlin.
