"Yes, continue. I'm the exact number can not say, but it's about 400 million cubic meters, "said Novak, answering the question correspondents continue the supply of gas in the Donbass, and how many have already been delivered, reports RIA" Novosti ".
Russian Gazprom and Ukrainian Naftogaz are in a constant process of negotiations on gas supplies in the Donbass, said Novak. According to Novak, Gazprom bills at full volume, and Naftogaz did not recognize them." Further, this issue is resolved through approved civil legal norms, " said Novak. Russia on 19 February began supplying gas to the South-East of Ukraine through the gas metering station "Prokhorovka" and "Platoo" on the borders of Rostov, Luhansk and Donetsk regions. Kiev stopped gas supplies to the region, citing the damage to the pipelines at the end of hostilities. Payment for these supplies was another contentious issue in negotiations of Russia and Ukraine. Gazprom stated that the supply of gas to the South-East of Ukraine in accordance with the contract with Naftogaz, respectively, and to pay for their needs Ukrainian state. Ukraine refuses to do, pointing to the inability to control both the fact of supplies and their volumes.
