The authorities of Ukraine in the second quarter not provided gas supplies to uncontrolled territory, it follows from the forecast balance of receipt and distribution of gas to Ukraine for 2015, approved by the Cabinet.
"Gazprom" on February 19, started supplying gas directly to the South-East of Ukraine using GIS "Prokhorovka" and "Platovo" because Naftogaz said that cut gas supplies to the region because of the destruction of gas pipelines at the end of hostilities.
Since then, the Ministry of energy of Ukraine and "Naftogaz" has stated many times that gas supply to Donbas. However, in the self-proclaimed DPR and LPR these data refuted, claiming that receive natural gas directly from Russia.
