Russia’s state-owned gas company, Gazprom, announced on Tuesday (21) an agreement with the government of China that will increase the number of the export of gas from Siberia to northeastern China.
Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping signed the new cooperation document.
On Monday, “Gazprom delivered the ordered volumes and set a new historical record for daily gas supply to China,” the state-owned company said in a statement. The company did not reveal further details, saying it could not release “any additional information.”
The deal comes amid ongoing tensions between Russia and Western countries, brought on by the war against Ukraine, sparked by Vladimir Putin’s regime.
Last year, Russia reportedly exported about 15.5 billion cubic meters of gas to China. By 2025, Moscow plans to increase its exports to 38 billion cubic meters annually.
