MADRID, 4 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Russian government has assured that it is the European Union that must repair the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline so that natural gas shipments to Germany can be resumed.
"If the Europeans take this totally absurd decision and refuse to do maintenance on their systems, or rather systems belonging to Gazprom, it is not Gazprom's fault, but the politicians who decide on sanctions," he said. affirmed the Kremlin spokesman, Dimitri Peskov, according to the Russian news agency Interfax.
Peskov has thus ensured that it is the Europeans who have the contractual obligation to carry out the maintenance of the systems of the Russian state company Gazprom, which announced on Friday the immediate and indefinite suspension of gas shipments due to a failure at a gas station. compression.
Germany has questioned this reasoning, as has the gas equipment manufacturing company Siemens, and considers that these leaks are common and do not force gas shipments to be stopped. Thus, Berlin considers that Moscow has breached its contracts by ceasing shipments.
However, Peskov has ensured that Gaprom remains a reliable supplier. "These so-called politicians are causing the death of their own citizens when they see electricity bills. When it gets colder, the situation will be even worse," she argued.
As for the war in Ukraine, Peskov has assured that Russia is willing to negotiate with the Ukrainian president, Volodimir Zelensky, how the Russian conditions for the completion of the "special military operation" are met.
These conditions remain the same. "Of course. The operation is underway. All the objectives are going to be achieved," she riveted.
