MOSCOW, 12 Feb. Serbia regrets about stopping the construction of the gas pipeline “South stream”, said at a press conference in MIA “Russia today”, the Ambassador of Serbia in Russia slavenko the Terzic.

“We are very sorry that South stream was stopped. There are different discussions about the way of supply of gas, but still we expect the increase in storage,” he said.
