KRASNOYARSK, February 27. /TASS/. Ukraine should complete payment for Russian gas on Friday so that the March supplies are not stopped, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Friday.
"The concerns and worries are caused first of all by the fact that not much prepaid gas is left. If there is no money the supplies will stop starting from Tuesday," Novak said, adding that this goes in line with the agreements reached in Brussels.
"The payment should be completed Friday so that the gas is supplied starting from Tuesday," he said.
"If there is no payment there will be a break in gas supplies to Ukraine. The European consumers will fully receive gas," Novak said, adding though that since Kiev has not fully provided its needs if Ukraine does not receive gas from Russia there are risks that it will siphon off Russian gas.
