Due to the agreement with Russia, Serbia saves eight million euros a day, News
Serbia has provided six million cubic meters of imported gas on a daily basis, which pays 270 euros per 1,000 cubic meters of gas, while the price of gas for that amount in Europe is 1,700 euros, said Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.
“Thanks to the agreement with the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, Serbia saves about eight million euros a day in gas imports,” Vucic emphasized.
He said that gas is too expensive today, and that the situation in our country is such that the industry consumes half of our gas, and that the needs will be even greater.
“We have secured the import of six million cubic meters of gas on a daily basis, and we need nine or ten. We pay 270 euros per 1,000 cubic meters. Today’s price on the stock exchange, thanks to the stupid statements of European politicians, is 1,700 euros, and it will go to 1,800 euros,” Vucic explained.
This means that the price that Serbia pays to Russia is six times lower than the European price.
“Imagine that I did not agree with Putin and that on January 1 we have this price. For 10 million cubic meters, we would pay 17 million euros. For six million cubic meters of gas, we would pay 10 million. This is how we pay a million and a half for six million cubic meters. We saved Serbia eight million euros a day,” Vucic said.
He added that an agreement is expected for an additional four million cubic meters of gas that we need, and stated that the price cannot be like this of 270 euros, but that he will fight for the best possible price, and if necessary, he says, again will call the president of Russia.
The President pointed out that Serbia would be in a serious problem if the gas pipeline through our country had not been built.
“Imagine what would have happened if we had not built the gas pipeline. There is no gas, electricity, we would go back to the Middle Ages,” Vučić noted.
He added that the production of electricity in our country costs between 40 and 50 euros per megawatt hour.
He also stated that the price of electricity on the stock exchange in Great Britain today is 472 euros, and in our country it is mostly 320 euros in Europe.
“The needs are terrible, everyone lacks electricity,” Vučić stated and added that there will still be problems with energy sources in the world, Sputnik News reports.
