Russia and EU discussed Ukraine’s plans to seize Gazprom’s assets

Gazprom’s assets
Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak and Vice-President of the European Commission in charge of Energy Union Maros Sefcovic discussed Ukraine's intention to seize the assets of Gazprom around the world in case the company fails to comply with the Stockholm arbitration court's ruling, an EU diplomatic source familiar with the course of the talks told TASS.

According to him, Sefcovich learned from Novak about the plans of the Ukrainian party to seize the assets of Gazprom and expressed his bewilderment.

The European commissioner assured the Russian minister that "the Ukrainians promised not to do this".

However, the source said that before the end of the holidays the European Commission will not be able to ask Kiev about the reasons for such statements.

According to the source, the meeting between Novak and Sefcovic may be organized already in the middle of next week.
