"The speech of the UK Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Amber Rudd on 24 March, where she expressed concern over Russia’s gas supplies to the EU as allegedly a tool of our foreign policy are surprising and disappointing," the statement reads.
The Russian diplomatic mission underscores that Rudd's statement distorts the situation with gas supplies.
"It misrepresents the situation and defies the logic of this business as it applies to Britain," the embassy added.
The embassy underscored that Russia does not use gas supplies as a foreign policy tool.
The UK gas market is one of the most diversified in the world. Russian supplies do not have a significant impact on the British market and the country's energy security, as Russia supplies relatively small volumes to the United Kingdom.
