It is impossible to increase gas supplies to Europe. Indeed, in this case, they will exceed the volumes, stipulated by contracts.
Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters about it..
The Kremlin, represented by its official representative, approves, that our country flawlessly fulfills the terms of contracts "at the highest level". That is, Gazprom supplies Europe with the maximum amount of gas, contracted, but can no longer increase supplies – current conditions do not allow.
So Peskov answered questions about, increased volumes of natural gas, supplied by Russia to Europeans, or not.
Well, beyond the contracts, nothing can be supplied. That is, as, is free?
– he sneers.
And when the journalists reminded the press secretary about the spot market, where Russia could put additional volumes, he advised them to contact Gazprom directly on this matter.
Meanwhile, during the Russian Energy Week, Russian President Vladimir Putin also spoke on this issue.. he noted, that Russia this year may reach a record volume of natural gas sales. Wherein, talking about gas shortages in Europe, the head of the Russian state noted, that our country is always ready to help partners. Therefore, any proposed additional actions by Russia can be discussed..
