In the medium term, the goal of deeper EU market integration will mean uniform development of the gas price on all markets. The gas price cannot be 30% less in EU countries than in other countries in the block, he said at a conference in Vilnius on Friday when asked which actions the European Commission should take in reaction to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decree on measures to protect Russia’s interests in the execution of foreign economic activities by Russian companies.

General rules need to be observed when gas is delivered to EU countries, and if they are violated, changes need to be made. Otherwise, the EC will be forced to make certain decisions, Oettinger said.

Russia understands EC rules but does not fully adopt them. It is a different culture. The EC requires a more consolidated foreign energy policy, Oettinger said.
