The existing agreement with Gazprom was signed in 2003, afterwards it was prolonged and various technical issues were resolved – Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Energy Kakha Kaladze said at today’s press conference.
As the Minister of Energy noted, communications and the agreement with the company had been existed for years. “Those who raise agiotage around this topic are well aware about this,” said Kaladze.
He says that the meetings in the framework of the existing agreement are carried out over the years, including under the regime of Saakashvili, as well as before.
“In addition to the gas received for transit, additional gas deliveries from Russia were carried out even after the war. However, for some reason, these facts are forgotten, and no one speaks of them. There is some brink of political morality which shouldn’t be crossed even by the most marginal bankrupt politicians or parties. It is clear that there is an election year and bankrupt political parties, politicians are trying to remind themselves”, Kakha Kaladze says.
