Gas supplies from Russia to Ukraine are terminated prior to receipt from Naftogaz of new payments, said the head of Board "Gazprom" Alexey Miller.
"Today at 10am" Naftogaz of Ukraine " has chosen the first pre-paid volumes of gas from Russia. New pre-payment has not been received. Applications for production and delivery of gas from "Naftogaz of Ukraine" no. Thus, Deliveries continue until the income from Ukrainian organizations of new payments ", - told reporters the head of " Gazprom ".
at the same time already now, before the onset of severe cold weather, Ukraine began active selection of gas from underground storage facilities, which were not sufficiently full, he added.
"The refusal of gas purchases from Russia poses a serious security risk for gas transit to the European Union via Ukraine and for gas supply to Ukrainian customers in the coming winter ", - noticed Miller.
