UPI: Kremlin: European energy security intact

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said he was standing by European energy needs despite the ongoing turmoil in Ukraine.

Energy companies reviewing Ukrainian shale natural gas reserves suspended operations because of conflict in the east of the country. Kiev said Thursday the border city of Novoazovsk fell to pro-Russian separatists.

Europe relies on Russia for about a quarter of its natural gas needs, though nearly all of that runs through the Soviet-era pipeline network in Ukraine.
