EU Commission's Stance on South Stream in Serbia Still Unknown

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.

Κομισιόν προς Βελιγράδι: «Η Κατασκευή του South Stream θα Επηρεάσει Αρνητικά την Ενταξιακή Πορεία της Σερβίας»

Η κατασκευή του σερβικού κομματιού του South Stream θα έχει επιπτώσεις στην υποψηφιότητα της χώρας για την ΕΕ, διαμηνύει στο Βελιγράδι η Ευρωπαϊκή Επιτροπή στην ετήσια έκθεσή της για την διεύρυνση, η οποία αναμένεται να δοθεί αύριο, Τετάρτη, στη δημοσιότητα. 

Ωστόσο, η απειλή εμφανίζεται αρκετά αποδυναμωμένη, καθώς ο νέος Πρόεδρος της Κομισιόν, Ζαν-Κλωντ Γιούνκερ έχει αποκλείσει την εισδοχή νέων μελών στην Ένωση για την επόμενη πενταετία.

Σύμφωνα με την έκθεση, η διακυβερνητική συμφωνία ανάμεσα στη Σερβία και την Ρωσία για την κατασκευή του South Stream δεν είναι συμβατή με το «κοινοτικό κεκτημένο».

Reuters: Η Gazprom Ματαιώνει το Νότιο Σκέλος του South Stream

Σύμφωνα με ανταπόκριση του Reuters, η ρωσική Gazprom προσανατολίζεται να ακυρώσει οριστικά το νότιο σκέλος του αγωγού φυσικού αερίου South Stream, το οποίο θα περνούσε και από την Ελλάδα, ώστε να περιορίσει το συνολικό κόστος του έργου.
Είχε προηγηθεί πέρυσι η απόφαση της Gazprom να υλοποιήσει σε πρώτη φάση μόνο το βόρειο σκέλος του αγωγού, αλλά πλέον φαίνεται ότι το νότιο κομμάτι βαίνει προς οριστική ματαίωση, καθώς η εταιρεία δίνει έμφαση περισσότερο στο να ενώσει τον South Stream με την Αυστρία και την Ιταλία από τον Βορρά, όπως προκύπτει από τις πρόσφατες επαφές που είχε ο πρόεδρος, Αλεξέι Μίλερ, με κυβερνητικά στελέχη της συγκεκριμένης χώρας.

South Stream Pipeline More Urgent Amid Ukraine Crisis. – Russian Ambassador to EU

The South Stream gas pipeline project, currently under development, has become more urgent amid Ukrainian warnings that Russian gas flows to Europe could be halted, Russian Ambassador to the EU Vladimir Chizhov told RIA Novosti on Wednesday. 

“I believe the relevance of the South Stream project has risen amid the Ukrainian crisis, because we have already heard not threats, but hints from Ukrainian authorities, including interim Prime Minister Yatsenuk, of yet another attempt to disrupt the transit of Russian gas,” Chizhov said.
