The Commission is investigating suspected anti-competitive
practices by Russia’s Gazprom, which has said it will
fight the case but not cut supplies in retaliation.
EU Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger said there was no
supply risk. “We don’t see any direct risk for our security of
our supply, either for oil, coal or gas. We assume all sides
will respect contractual commitments,” he told reporters.
“We have had intensive bilateral discussions about Russian
developments,” he said on the sidelines of an informal meeting
of EU energy ministers in Cyprus, holder of the EU presidency.
