Greece Backs Russia’s Decision to Scrap Gas Transit via Ukraine

Moscow’s decision to shift the transit of gas through Ukraine to Turkey is fair and will prove beneficial for Greece, Greek officials told Sputnik on Friday.
“Russia’s decision to change the gas route to Turkey sounds entirely justified. Russia cannot be held ‘hostage’ by stupid and illogical EU politics. It is Europe who has to stop Ukrainian provocations in Donetsk and Luhansk regions and by doing so guarantee regular gas supplies to Europe”, member of the Council of the Greek-Russian Chamber of Trade Dimitris Velanis told Sputnik.

“The EU has imposed sanctions on Russia that undermine the development of bilateral energy cooperation, but at the same time it accuses Russia of refusing to supply gas. This is where a double standard in policy can be seen, and in the end it will boomerang on Europe”, he added.

The expert underlined that the Greek government is ready “to support any Russian decision concerning gas supplies to Greece and through Greece to other European countries”.

According to Velanis, the Greeks are extremely interested in developing energy cooperation with Russia, as “any child could understand that neither American shale gas, nor the Baku Trans Adriatic pipeline is enough to satisfy European demand for gas”...........................
