MOSCOW Wed Aug 27, 2014 2:43pm EDT

MOSCOW Aug 27 (Reuters) - Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday that Russia is and will be a reliable supplier of natural gas to Europe, in response to warnings from Kiev that Moscow could cut off fuel to the continent this winter.

"Russia was, is and will be a reliable supplier of energy resources to Europe," Peskov told journalists.

"We hope that Ukraine in turn will guarantee unhindered transit."
