The European Commission (EC) confirmed the receipt of a complaint from the Ukrainian company Naftogaz against Gazprom demanding that the Russian firm sell large consignments of gas to the European Union (EU) with transit through Ukraine. This was told by the representative of the department Maria Tsoni, reports RIA News…
According to her, the complaint will be assessed based on the standard procedures of the European Commission. “We do not intend to comment on this anymore at the moment,” Tsoni said.
Earlier it was reported that Naftogaz had filed a complaint with the EU against Gazprom. “Gazprom has sharply reduced sales of its own gas in the European spot market, despite growing demand and restricting the ability of other companies to supply additional volumes of gas to Europe and compete,” the Ukrainian company’s website said.
After Gazprom again failed to book capacities for the transit of natural gas through Poland via the Yamal – Europe gas pipeline, the supply of Russian gas to Germany via Poland stopped. Gazprom itself commented on the stoppage of gas supplies as follows: “We have obligations to our customers regarding gas supplies. We calculate them in accordance with the applications. And how, in what directions – this is our internal cuisine. We fulfill our obligations to consumers, to those who bought gas from us. With that, everything is according to plan. “
