MOSCOW, December 27. /TASS/. Gazprom has presented today its proposals to the European Commission (EC) regarding the settlement within the framework of the ongoing antimonopoly probe into company’s operations in Central and East Europe, the Russian gas holding said on Tuesday.
"Our proposals were prepared in follow-up of a series of consultations by among the EC, Russia and Gazprom held since 2013. We held a range of meaningful discussions with the European Commission, where parties had an opportunity to discuss in detail all matters giving rise to concerns of the European Commission. Proposals tabled by Gazprom is an outcome of serious work and demonstrate our readiness to address comments of the European party on gas market issues in due course, where it is justified and possible," Deputy CEO of Gazprom Alexander Medvedev said.
