VIENNA, September 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Hungary’s gas operator FGSZ Ltd. has suspended gas supplies to Ukraine for an indefinite period of time, the company said on Thursday.
The decision was made to meet the growing domestic demand for gas, the company said.
Gas supplies to Ukraine were suspended at 18:00 local time on September 25. “Gas supplies have been halted for an indefinite period of time,” the company said.
In March 2013, Ukraine and Hungary agreed on gas supplies to Ukraine in the amount of up to 6.1 billion cubic metres a year (16.6 million cubic metres a day).
It was also stated that the system could operate intermittently, depending on current commercial and technical conditions.
