MOSCOW, December 1./TASS/. The Kremlin does not answer the question about the future of two Russian projects in Turkey - construction of Akkuyu nuclear power plant and the Turkish Stream gas pipeline, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday noting that these projects were under the jurisdiction of the government.
"This question should be addressed to the government," Peskov said, declining to answer reporters’ queries about the future of the projects. He also specified that the president’s decree on special economic measures against Turkey signed on November 28 stressed that the list of measures was drawn up by the government.
The decree of the Russian Government on special economic measures against Turkey released on Tuesday does not contain any information about measures in energy sphere.
Russia’s nuclear power giant Rosatom refrained from any comments on project’s prospects.
Turkish Stream and Akkuyu nuclear power plant construction may be frozen or abandoned within the framework of restrictive measures against Turkey, Russian Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukayev said earlier.
The moves follow the downing of a Russian Su-24 bomber in Syria by Turkish air force on November 24.
