Kremlin-controlled gas giant Gazprom told its consumers on Tuesday that its position on the European gas market remains safe and could even improve thanks to unfaltering demand for the fuel.Russian gas supplies to Europe have become increasingly politicized since Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 and was accused of stirring up insurgency in the east of the country, where more than 10,000 people have been killed.Gazprom's 2017 gas exports to Europe and Turkey were up 8.1 percent at a record 193.9 billion cubic meters (bcm) despite Europe's efforts to reduce reliance on Russian energy supplies.Gazprom's Deputy Chief Executive Alexander Medvedev told the conference that healthy demand for the Russian gas in Europe will help to maintain Russian gas exports around current levels.
