Putin Attends Russia-EU Plenary Meeting in Brussels

Russian President Putin attended the Russia-EU plenary meeting ahead of the summit on Friday in Brussels.

Putin commented on the Third Energy Package for an internal gas and electricity market in the European Union. It bans suppliers from completely owning transit facilities such as pipelines, meaning Russia’s energy giant Gazprom would have to allow third-party gas producers to use the South Stream pipeline to fall in line with the new regulations.

Putin said: “We are somewhat puzzled, to put it mildly, by the retroactive effect of this decision. We think that this is a wrong, I would even say an uncivilized decision.”

He added that the Eurasian economic integration between Russia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan is an important factor in Russia-EU relations.
