“Gazprom” satisfies all the requests of its buyers for gas supplies to Europe, said Deputy Chairman of the Board of “Gazprom”, General Director of “Gazprom Export” Elena Burmistrova on the air of the TV channel “Russia 1”.
All deliveries are carried out following the submitted applications, she clarified.
Earlier it was reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the company to ensure reliable gas supplies to the EU and transit through Ukraine.
It would be more profitable for Gazprom even to pay a fine, but to increase transit past Ukraine – this transit requires large energy costs to maintain pressure in the old Ukrainian pipes.
“But I ask you not to do this,” the president said at a meeting on energy issues, noting the importance of observing contractual obligations for the transit and pumping of Russian gas through Ukraine.
Pumping Russian gas through new pipelines built in the Czech Republic and Croatia is about $3 billion cheaper per year than through Ukraine. At the same time, the amount of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere will be 5.6 times lower.
Europeans have already been warned of possible fuel shortages this coming winter. Germany’s emergency services have even released several training videos on how to keep warm in the event of a heating and power outage, Russian media reported.
Among other life hacks, it was proposed to build a heater from a flower pot, seal the windows with foil and invite neighbors who will warm your apartment with their breath.
