There is "no proof" Russia is withholding natural gas deliveries to Europe, the country's President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday.

Claims against PJSC Gazprom are not true, and accusers are "lying all the time," he told reporters, stressing that gas deliveries from Russia to Europe have even grown by at least 12%.

Russia is "not cornering the market" in Europe and is not the only supplier of gas, he underscored. The United States decided to leave the European market and direct its gas deliveries to major countries in Asia and South America, according to Putin. "Europeans thought they were the premium market. No, they were wrong," he pointed out.
