Putin: I’m concerned Ukraine radicals can disrupt gas transit ― RT Business

Russian President Vladimir Putin said he’s concerned that Ukrainian radicals could cut supplies of Russian gas to Europe. Energy, Russia’s strategic sector, shouldn’t be disrupted by politics as it erodes efficiency and distorts processes, he added.

“We are seriously concerned by the statements of Ukraine’s radicals, their straightforward threats to hinder transit to Europe,” Putin said in his address to energy leaders during the last day of the 18th International Economic Forum.

“We hope common sense will prevail and it won’t happen.”
