The position of the new team of European Commissioners on the construction of the Serbian section of the Russia-led South Stream gas pipeline is not clear yet though preparations for the project are underway, the Russian president's top aide, Yury Ushakov, told journalists Wednesday.
"Preparations for the construction of the Serbian section are well underway. I expect them [European Commissioners] to mention it. It has been made clear to Serbia that it will find next to impossible to implement this project without a go-ahead from Brussels, although [Serbia] is more than ready. It is of great interest to them," the presidential aide said.

Έτινγκερ: Να αναθεωρήσει η Σερβία το συμβόλαιό της με τη Gazprom

Εάν η Σερβία θέλει να αποφύγει τυχόν μελλοντικό "πάγωμα" των επικείμενων ενταξιακών της διαπραγματεύσεων με την Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση, τότε πρέπει να αναθεωρήσει το συμβόλαιό της με τη Gazprom και τον South Stream, διεμήνυσε ο Ευρωπαίος Επίτροπος, αρμόδιος για την ενέργεια, Γκίντερ Έτινγκερ, μιλώντας χτες στις Βρυξέλλες σε forum για την ενεργειακή πολιτικής της ΕΕ.

«Οι ενταξιακές διαπραγματεύσεις της Σερβίας με την Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση, που αναμένεται να ξεκινήσουν περίπου την ίδια περίοδο μ’ αυτές μεταξύ ΕΕ και Ρωσίας για τα αναθεωρημένα συμβόλαια, είναι δύο διασυνδεόμενες, παράλληλες διαδικασίες» υπογράμμισε ο Επίτροπος.

Is South Stream too hard to handle for Gazprom?

The South Stream pipeline will be built via Bulgaria, ending in the north of Italy. The Russian gas giant has managed to obtain the consent of all the countries, through the territories of which the pipeline is going to be built. The construction may begin as early as in December of this year. Experts point out that the financial requirements of the project may undermine Gazprom's financial situation.
Bulgaria was the last to join the project. Last week, the head of Gazprom, Alexey Miller, and Bulgarian Energy Holding CEO, Michael Andonov, in the presence of Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, signed the final investment agreement. The document has approved the construction of the Bulgarian section of South Stream gas pipeline.
