Russia will continue to be the biggest player on the global energy market with plans to increase natural gas deliveries to Europe and Asia, according to the head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) Kirill Dmitriev.

“We believe gas is very ecologically friendly. It produces 45 percent less emissions than coal and 30 percent less than oil,” he said at the “Global Energy Challenge” session of the World Economic Forum in Davos. (RT)
