U.S. praises efforts of Ukrainians against Gazprom's provocation

Washington has praised the efforts of Ukrainians who opposed a provocation by Russian gas monopoly Gazprom, which failed to portray Ukraine as an unreliable gas transit partner. 

U.S. Department of State spokesperson Heather Nauert reported this on Twitter, Ukrinform reports.

"Ukraine citizens have inspired the world by pulling together to reduce gas consumption by 14% last week to ensure reliable gas delivery to European customers," she wrote.

"Gazprom has failed in its attempt to portray Ukraine and Naftogaz of Ukraine as unreliable transit partners," she added. 

At the same time, Nauert referred to her previous statement made on March 2.

"Gas supply and transit must never be a political weapon. We expect Gazprom to supply gas to Ukraine's transit pipeline per Stockholm Arbitration decision. Russia should prove it is a reliable gas supplier," Nauert said.
