BRUSSELS, July 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian oil and gas supplies to Europe should not be subject to sanctions over Russia’s stance on Ukraine, European Union Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger said on Wednesday.
The EU energy envoy said he had always spoken against imposing any sanctions on Russian gas and oil supplies. He said, however, that Russia depended on Western technologies for offshore hydrocarbon and shale gas extraction.
The EU Council could consider restricting the provision of these technologies to Russia, if Moscow does not contribute to peace in Ukraine, the energy commissioner said.
