“Russia will, under any circumstance, guarantee the energy security of the European continent, without depending on whether anyone likes this or not.” Peskov said in response to a press question on the matter.
The official underlined that the Eurasian nation fulfills all commitments related to gas supplies. “Russia’s reliability as a supplier and partner in current and future contracts is beyond doubt,” he assured.
On Thursday Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko declared that they could cut off the transit of Russian gas to the so-called old continent through the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline, if the head of the European Union decides to extend sanctions against his country.
In response to a question from journalists on the subject, Peskov commented that such statements by the Belarusian leader were not agreed with Moscow.
