South Stream gas pipeline may be laid in the territory of Greece, although Gazprom lost in struggle for DESFA

The unprecedented pressure on Russian is unlikely to force Gazprom to abandon the construction of the South Stream gas pipeline. Too much money has been invested.

And Greece can help with it.

On August 19th, 2014, Bulgaria again suspended the construction of the South Stream main gas pipeline. The EU practically stopped the negotiations with Russia on the prospects of its construction.
According to the EU, it should finally force Putin to abandon the construction of the South Stream gas pipeline, to agree to supply gas vie Ukrainian gas transportation system, which will be controlled by the United States and the European Union in the future and to stop supporting Novorossiya.

The EU expected concessions from Russia, but can not see them.

The disclaimer of Bulgarian brothers – Slavs is sad, of course. But, Russia has another variant. It is the construction of a new route of the South Stream gas pipeline under the Black Sea to the coast of Turkey, transit via the Turkish gas transportation system to the border with Greece and further transit via the gas transportation system of Greece to other EU countries.

The fact that Turkey supports this plan has long been known. The Energy Minister of Turkey has repeatedly spoken in favour of this route.
