Gazprom puts Lithuania assets up for sale
(06-12 18:49)

Russian energy giant Gazprom put its stake in two Lithuanian energy companies up for sale, just days after regulators in Vilnius fined it for blocking competition in the Baltic state.
''The prime minister has been notified that Gazprom ... has decided to sell its shares in Amber Grid and Lietuvos Dujos,'' spokeswoman for Lithuania's Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevicius said.
''We have been notified, but the transaction is not yet complete. The deadline is Monday,'' she added.--AFP
