MOSCOW, March 16. /TASS/. Russia is ready to supply energy resources to European consumers in volumes they are ready to buy the same, Russia’s EU Ambassador Vladimir Chizhov said during the Moscow-Brussels video bridge on Wednesday.
Prospects to resume the South Stream project exist, the diplomat said. "I think such projects exist from the objective viewpoint, from the standpoint of EU demands for Russian gas. We will see to what extent countries participating in the project and the European Commission will be interested," the Russian envoy said. "Different forces exist in the EU. Some are sincerely mourning for it while the others are preoccupied with a super task of lowering the dependence on energy supplies from Russia, occasionally reducing it to an absurdity," Chizhov added.
"I would not attempt to forestall the destiny of the South Stream and other infrastructural projects in Europe. I will only say Russia is ready to supply energy resources to European consumers in volumes they are ready to buy the same," the diplomat said.
