“The contract between Gazprom and Hungary is not aimed at putting pressure on Ukraine. Russia has never used, does not use and will not use natural gas to punish someone”, Peskov said.

Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov noted that the Russian side is ready to discuss Ukraine’s resumption of direct gas purchases if necessary. Moreover, he said that readiness to discuss this had been repeatedly voiced not only by representatives of the national gas monopoly, but also by representatives of the Russian side at various levels.
