Europe responded to Putin’s words about stopping transit through Ukraine

The European Commission (EC - the government of the European Union, the EU) officially announces that it "remains calm" on the issue of transit of Russian natural gas through Ukraine and is looking for ways out of this situation. This was stated by a representative of the EC press service Bulgarian Mina Andreeva.

We continue to do our work and participate in tripartite gas negotiations to find a solution.

- emphasized Andreeva.

It should be noted that before this, Russian President Vladimir Putin, during a meeting with reporters at which the results of the BRICS summit were discussed, сказалthat there is a risk of termination of the transit of Russian gas through the territory of Ukraine. At the same time, Moscow is ready to reduce the price of gas for Kiev by 25% with direct deliveries. Moreover, Moscow is ready to conclude agreements and any cooperation, but is waiting for reciprocity.

We are ready to work with Ukraine both on the transit of our gas to Europe and on deliveries to Ukraine itself. Moreover, at prices lower than those at which Ukraine receives Russian gas, but as if by reverse from Europe

- Putin explained.

It should be recalled that the current agreement on the transit of Russian gas to Europe through Ukraine ends on December 31, 2019. At the same time, Moscow wants Kiev I refuse from a contrived debt of $ 22 billion and the parties began cooperation from scratch. In turn, they regularly threaten regular suits from Kiev.

    Even for the stupid Western Europeans began to realize that the Ruin is unsupportable, unreliable, and generally non-state. Walk The field, in short, everything repeats, like a century ago.

        Kolya, when did you live in Europe?

        And I still live in Europe. I only remember that you and I did not drink to the Brudershaft, so let's go to YOU, without familiarity and familiarity.

            Something with whom I would not communicate from Europe, they adhere to one position - all do not care for Ukraine, in general. And all these dances with a tambourine just so that the guides do not stink too much.

            What kind of soul I have, the Lord will judge. And politeness allows you to conduct a discourse on the essence of the issue, without being distracted by questions like "who are you?"

    Europe satisfies all legal claims of Ukraine, even immoral ones! This is how Europe works with Ukraine. Even on Nord Stream 2, an immoral law was passed, showing the place of Russia! Now Gazprom will be suing for 3-5 years. Therefore, Gazprom itself does not file claims against Ukraine or Europe. And what to serve when our rulers and deputies have families for a long time "entrenched" in this Europe! Here is Europe together with Ukraine and mock Russia. They know that nothing will happen to them. And it always happens when the "loot" outweighs the mind.

    Indeed, either cooperation or butt in the courts, one thing must be chosen.

    Russia needs to send Europe to ...
    Now all the gas will go to China, and Europe needs to beg Russia on its knees to give it the right amount of Russian gas, otherwise Europeans will freeze.
