- The Kremlin on Wednesday played down the impact of lost gas sales to Europe on Russia's economy and said there were plenty of other countries that wanted to buy Russia's energy resources.

"Europe is the only consumer of gas and the only continent that gas," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters in a conference call.

"There are regions developing at a much faster pace ... they can compensate for the (reduced) demand for (Russian) gas in Europe," he said.
