MOSCOW, June 7. /TASS/. Gazprom will offer natural gas volumes currently supplied to Poland to other companies after the contract expires, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday after talks with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
"Gazprom is studying the opportunities and intends to make an offer shortly to any other partners - Polish, European and any partners whatsoever - on purchase of volumes currently supplied for Poland on the Belarus-Poland border after expiration of the contract, making a new contract for 10-15 years," Putin said.
It makes no difference for Russia which European companies will buy this gas, the Russian president said.
"I think someone will buy," he added.
Poland’s partners at the corporate level "have not yet rejected anything," Putin said responding to the request for comment on the statement of the representative of Poland’s government regarding the intention to give up buying Russian gas after expiration of the contract. Russia "assumes it is possible" since the statement was made by the high-ranking government official, Putin added.
