MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia will prioritise gas supplies for its home market, Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak told a forum on Thursday.

Novak said that Gazprom plans to finish filling domestic storage by the end of this month, depending on the weather, and reiterated that no one in Europe has asked Russia to send additional gas to calm surging spot prices.
