His comments came in response to a statement from the European Commission that concluded, after a long investigation, that Gazrpom, Russia's state-owned gas company, might have abused its dominant position in the European Union's energy market.

"We hope compromises will be reached. We believe such disputes should definitely be resolved in the course of negotiations," he said.

"We expect the absolutely impartial treatment for Gazprom," Peskov added.

Gazprom will defend its interests in this matter and "the government as the key shareholder in this company will also look after Gazprom's interests," the press secretary said.

Gazprom believes that the European Commission's claims are unfounded. Gazprom expects to resolve the situation taking into account the agreement reached earlier between the Russian government and the European Commission on a mutually acceptable solution for the antimonopoly investigation issue, the company said.
