This is good news! DEPA belongs to the Greek people! It's the troïka that's imposing privatization

14:36 Good luck with 'cheaper deals'. EU gets them every day. Unfortunately, only on paper so far.

@14:05 since EU is getting better (cheaper) gasdeals from others than GAZPROM it does't matter.

EU doesn't want Gazprom to buy DEPA?
Now bailout plan is failing. EU shoots its foot... As always.

EU can fine any company that works within is borders & doesn't respect the rules.

Anonymous user 10.06.2013 23:55

Why is Russia allowing the EU to "fine" Russian companies billions of dollars? This is simple theft!
