Mogherini urges Gazprom to comply with contractual obligations

Mogherini urges Gazprom to comply with contractual obligations”

The EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Affairs added that the EU is striving to achieve peace by fully implementing the Minsk agreements. According to Poroshenko, the European Union and Ukraine should boost cooperation to increase their energy security. For the Ukrainian president the recent disputes between Naftogaz and Gazprom show that Russian Federation is an unreliable gas supplier not only for Ukraine, but also for the European Union.

The contract for the supply of natural gas from Russian Federation to Ukraine, signed in early 2009, was set to expire by the end of 2019. However, Naftogaz opted to stop buying the contracted volume in November 2015, replacing it with reverse gas supplies from European countries.

"Gazprom must comply with its contract obligations", said Federica Mogherini, who noted that the EC has already discussed the situation through Energy Commissioner for Maritime Affairs Maros Sefcovic.

The European Union on Monday said it had extended sanctions against Russian Federation, imposed over the annexation of Crimea and supporting rebels in eastern Ukraine, for another six months.

The conflict between Russia-backed fighters and Ukrainian troops has killed more than 10,000 people since 2014, when pro-Russian forces in eastern Ukraine rebelled against Kiev and Russia annexed Crimea. We should not forget about those who are now behind bars because of violations of worldwide law.
