MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s gas monopoly Gazprom (GAZP.MM) said on Tuesday it will continue defending its rights in accordance with the law after a British court ruled to freeze its assets.

Ukraine state oil and gas firm Naftogaz said earlier a London court has granted its request to freeze the British assets of Gazprom, part of its efforts to enforce an earlier arbitration ruling from Sweden.
