Russia’s gas exports will hit a record high this year, the state-controlled monopoly Gazprom is predicting.
The company expects its sales of gas to Europe to be unchanged from last year and worth around 48 billion euros.

Separately, Gazprom’s deputy chief executive Alexander Medvedev said that he did not expect any problems with Greece over paying for its Russian gas imports.
