MOSCOW, December 7. /TASS/. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin had telephone conversations with Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Serbia’s President Tomislav Nikolic, the Kremlin reported on Sunday.
They discussed bilateral cooperation and further work in the energy sphere after termination of the South Stream project.
On December 1, Putin said - under the current conditions Russia would not implement the South Stream project. Gazprom’s CEO Alexei Miller said the South Stream project was not working any longer. “That’s it, the project is closed,” he said.
Serbia’s Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic called “bad news” the information about Russia’s refusal from construction of the South Stream gas pipeline. He said Serbia and Hungary were most affected by the situation.
“Russia did have a right to take the decision, and Hungary recognises it,” Hungary’s Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said adding his country would have to find new sources of gas supplies to replace the South Stream.
