Alexander Medvedev quotes
Gazprom did everything possible to avoid gas shortages in Europe. Our options are not in any way unlimited.
Ukraine not only signed, but ratified the Energy Charter, and this charter specifies in black and white what obligations the transit country must observe.
That would absolutely contravene all international practice. All the gas our European customers, including Lithuania, Latvia, Germany and Poland, have contracted for, we will deliver to Belarus' transit system.
More gas stays in Ukraine than the agreement stipulates. You can call that lost gas, or stolen gas, you can call that what you like.
