MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The sanctions imposed by the West on Russia over the Ukrainian conflict pose danger to the European Union’s energy security, Russian oil giant Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin said in an article published by Financial Times.
“In the long term, sanctions against Russia endanger Europe’s security of supply,” Sechin wrote, adding that the sanctions the West have imposed on Iran “affect oil supplies and trade balances.”
Rosneft is among the Russian companies targeted by Western sanctions. In October 2014, Rosneft has filed a lawsuit to the London court to challenge the UK's implementation of anti-Russian energy restrictions. Early in February the London High Court has ruled to send the case of Rosneft to the European Court of Justice.
