When asked by journalists to comment on the document, Peskov said: “Here we do not see any new elements, a similar position was voiced by the President of the United States, and the state Department”. “This is a serial line, we do not consider it correct and acceptable, since we are talking about attempts to prevent the implementation of a purely commercial, economic of the project, which in the interests of not only gas supplier is Russia, but also consumers, primarily Germany as the EU”.
