Russia Rejects Western Partners for its Energy Policy, Choosing China and India Instead

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russia will no longer depend on Western energy partners, but will rely on reliable partners in its energy policy, including China and India.

Speaking at the Resin Dialogue Forum in New Delhi, Lavrov, in response to a question about the impact of the conflict in Ukraine on Russia’s energy policy, said: “The war that we are trying to stop and that the West started against us using the Ukrainian people has certainly affected Russian policy, including energy policy. In short, we will no longer depend on any partners in the West.”

Lavrov stressed that Russia “will not allow them (the West) to blow up pipelines anymore.”

The Russian Foreign Minister added: “Russian energy policy will henceforth be directed towards reliable partners, those who can be trusted, including, of course, India and China.”

Earlier, Lavrov confirmed the position of Russia, which requires an urgent and transparent investigation of the terrorist attacks against the Nord Stream gas pipelines.
