At the same time, the agency noted that the timing of the launch of gas supplies to the European gas transportation system depends on the decision of the German regulator.
Earlier, the head of Gazprom, Alexey Miller, reported that gas supplies via the Nord Stream-2 to Europe will begin before the end of the year.
In turn, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov reported that the launch of the first highway will begin in the near future.
