– Of course, the former chancellor, like all the people and experts who think and understand in Europe, is very concerned about reality and worried about the energy crisis brewing in Europe – said a Kremlin spokesman, citing RIA Novosti agency.
Peskov argues that the reasons for such a decision “have been explained by President Putin to the former chancellor in a very comprehensive and detailed way.”

The Russian President’s spokesman said that this project, which is a complex mechanism, is ready for immediate use.
