MOSCOW, February 19. /TASS/. Parliament speaker of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Andrey Purgin rejected as untrue media reports on Thursday that the republic had switched to Russian gas.
"Statements on the switch [to Russian gas] are premature and technical problems are currently being resolved," Purgin was quoted by the Donetsk news agency as saying.
"The DPR is currently using its own natural gas reserves. The authorities are looking for a way out of the current situation to switch to using Russian natural gas," Purgin said.
"Ukraine has cut off natural gas supplies fully today without any warnings,"said the speaker.
Media reports circulated on Thursday said the self-proclaimed Donetsk People Republic had switched to Russian natural gas.
