"Although delayed, the project will be put into operation. The required capabilities to do so are available," TASS cited him as saying.
The press secretary refused to comment on the potential sanctions on Allseas for early withdrawal from the project. "These are commercial issues that cannot be made public," he added.
"Certainly, this creates problems but does not cast a doubt on the project as such and its completion," the spokesman concluded. ■
