Russian President Vladimir Putin against the administrative burden in the issue of gas supplies «Eastern petrochemical company» (VNHK), he stated in response to the suggestion of his assistant Andrei Belousov to set a specific period for the supply of gas.

Earlier in the meeting on realization of large investment projects in the far East Executive Director of «Rosneft» Igor Sechin said that the lack of agreement with «Gazprom» oil COMPANY threatens the life of the project.

«Concerning gas supplies — the government the government in this case to take measures to supply the COMPANY with natural gas for up to 1 March. It is not yet fulfilled. Offer, using the fact that there is a management of «Gazprom» and «Rosneft» still it’s a fix, nevertheless moreover, that these 2.3 billion cubic meters — the volume is very large, and it is necessary to fix a specific deadline and make the corresponding decision», — said Belousov.

In response to such a proposal the head of state said he believes that relations between the two companies, even if they are formed with participation of the state should be decided based on market principles and without administrative pressure, but within common sense.

«So I ask the government, and of administration in terms of economic unit to complete this work between companies and to seek solutions. But whether «Gazprom» to give direct instructions from the government to do one thing or another, I think, inappropriate. «Gazprom» all-taki joint-stock company with significant foreign capital participation, as well as «Rosneft». We can and must influence the processes that occur between the participants of economic activities, but the guidance will not give» — said the Russian leader.
