The rumors of Russia's intention to cut oil supplies to Europe via the Druzhba oil pipeline that have been spread by certain media sources, particularly by British ones, are "a fiction and a blatant provocation", said Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin, RBC reported.

He noted that the Soviet Union always fulfilled its contract obligations regardless of the political situation even during the Cold War, and that Russia, as a reliable partner, observed the same principles.

Most Russian oil exporters are international companies listed on European and US stock exchanges, Sechin stressed, adding that they met global financial and commodity markets' requirements and strictly fulfilled their obligations to foreign customers and lenders.
