BERLIN, October 17. /TASS/. Europe should respond to a statement by Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk that Ukraine can give no guarantees for safe Russian natural gas transit to Europe, Gazprom Deputy CEO Alexander Medvedev said on Friday.
“Yatsenyuk said yesterday that Ukraine will not be able to ensure the safety of gas supplies from Russia to Europe,” he said.
“I can interpret these words as saying that Ukraine grants itself the right to steal Russian gas intended for European consumers. This needs a response not only from Russia, but also from Europe,” the Gazprom deputy CEO said.
The Ukrainian national energy company Naftogaz earlier filed a claim with the Stockholm Arbitration Tribunal, disputing some provisions of the gas transit contract with Gazprom.
