MOSCOW, December 13. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have discussed by telephone the situation with Russian gas supplies to European consumers through Ukraine, as well as the situation in Syria, the Kremlin press service reported.
The two leaders agreed to intensify bilateral contacts.
