Kupryanov reminded that the gas company fulfills its obligations to consumers, supplies the product in accordance with the contract and the operator’s agreement, as well as pays for transit services.

Speaking to the Russia 24 channel, he warned that, however, Kiev created conditions under which gas transit through its territory is 34 percent lower than the capacity reserved and paid for by Gazprom.

On Tuesday, the operator of the Ukrainian gas transportation system informed that starting on Wednesday it would interrupt the transit of fuel to Europe through the Sokhranovka station due to force majeure.

According to him, the company allegedly cannot exercise control over the Novopskov border compression station in the Lugansk region because it is not under the control of its authorities, so requests for transportation will be rejected and there will be no gas reception.

The Ukrainian state-owned oil and natural gas extraction, transportation and processing company Naftogaz also informed Gazprom that if gas supplies from the Russian side to Sokhranovka continue, volumes at the exit points of the Ukrainian gas transportation system will be correspondingly reduced.

According to the Russian gas giant, there is no reason to stop pumping and assured that it did not receive any confirmation about the circumstances under which the Ukrainian side decreed force majeure.
