EU Energy Commissioner Maroš Šef?ovi? said he was ‘very surprised’ after Russia announced it would shift all its gas transit from Ukraine to Turkey, and that EU customers should buy this gas at the border with Greece.
“We don’t work like this,” Šef?ovi? said. “I believe we can find a better solution,” he added.
Šef?ovi?’s comments came after his first visit to Russia since he was appointed Commission Vice-President for the Energy Union.
