Naftogaz CEO Yuriy Vitrenko stated that Russian Gazprom does not specifically supply additional gas volumes to the European market in order to blackmail Europe as he stated during the briefing.

“All specialists of this market understand that Gazprom does not specifically supply additional volumes of gas to the European market. Everyone understands that this gas exists, everyone understands that Gazprom deliberately delays the supply of this gas, blackmailing Europe so that Nord Stream 2 is certified contrary to the requirements of European legislation,” Vitrenko said.
