Russia ready to help ease Europe energy crisis: Lavrov

Moscow:┬áRussia is willing to support Europe in overcoming the continent’s current energy crisis, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

“I would like to remind once again that (Russian gas industry giant) Gazprom is continuing to supply gas to Europe under long-term contracts,” Lavrov said at an online meeting on Friday with representatives from the Association of European Businesses in Russia.

“Gazprom is continuing to completely fulfil all of its obligations, and even more,” Xinhua news agency quoted the Minister as saying.

He believes that the European Commission and the US are directly responsible for the current tensions between Russia and Europe over energy supplies.

Lavrov said that the European Commission retroactively extended legal requirements for the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline, causing it to operate at just 50 per cent capacity.

The same could happen with the Nord Stream 2 pipeline that is about to be launched, he said.
