The U.S. state Department sees no evidence of the fact that new supplies of liquefied natural gas from Russia to the United States, said RIA Novosti the representative of the office of the state Department on energy Vincent Campos, commenting on the words of the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

Previously Zakharov said that «with all this visible public stream of negativity from Washington back to successfully routed, ironically, the Russian liquefied natural gas, and for the last time at least three tankers filled with liquefied natural gas from the Yamal LNG, reached the American shores.»

«I see what she said about previous supply of LNG have already arrived in the United States, in particular LNG from Yamal, which was delivered in Boston. I haven’t seen anything on new supply,» said Campos.

A source close to NOVATEK, told RIA Novosti that «has no idea where he goes after LNG sale to the first customer.» Some experts do not exclude that speech can go about the scheme, which was used in 2017. They believe that the US is not buying Russian LNG directly and use the services of intermediaries, among which the French Engie.
