Russia Open to Higher Gas Flows to Serbia

NATURAL GAS

Russia is open to talks with Serbia if it needs more gas during the winter, Russian Ambassador to Serbia Alexander Botsan-Kharchenko said.

  • "The original price, which refers to the previous base quantities, remains the lowest that can now be determined in Europe. That’s a very important point, and my message is that whenever we talk about energy and gas, we don’t forget that we have a basic contract with a very low and favorable price," he said.
  • Serbia buys gas from Russia for $420 per 1,000 cubic meters while the market price is 1,300-1,400 dollars.
  • By signing long term contracts to receive Russian gas, Serbia risks denting its opportunities to join the EU in the future.
