BRUSSELS, May 27. /TASS/. Russia's envoy to the European Union Vladimir Chizhov said on Wednesday that in its relations with Moscow the EU was doing exactly the same thing which Russia was usually accused of, namely using energy for political purposes.
"There is every indication that the EU is trying to put into practice those things it used to accuse Russia of, namely the use of energy for political purposes," said in an exclusive interview with TASS. "There is no other possible explanation for attempts to reduce Russia’s share in the EU’s energy balance at any cost," he said.
"Demand for gas in Europe will grow in the future," Chizhov said, adding that "there will be room" both for Turkish Stream and Europe’s Southern Gas Corridor as well as other projects.
