KIEV, October 26. /TASS/. Ukraine has imported more than 1.4 bln cubic meters of Russian gas since it resumed purchases from Russia (on October 12), spokesman of the country’s gas pipeline operator Ukrtransgaz Maxim Belyavsky told TASS on Monday.
"In 24 days of October Ukraine imported 1.7 bln cubic meters of natural gas for its consumers, with more than 80%, or 1.4 bln cubic meters, supplied from the Russian Federation," he said.
Belyavsky added that the remaining volumes of gas (more than 0.3 bln cubic meters) were delivered from the countries of the European Union (EU). "Natural gas was supplied from three directions: 285.3 mln cubic meters from Slovakia, 1.3 mln cubic meters from Poland, and 13.5 mln cubic meters from Hungary," he said.
As of today, Ukraine’s daily imports from Russia stand at 110 mln cubic meters, from Slokavia - at 14.3 mln cubic meters, from Hungary and Poland - at a total of 0.6 mln cubic meters.
The country has more than 16.8 bln cubic meters of natural gas stored in its underground storage facilities, which is 2% more than it had on the same date last year.
Earlier Ukraine’s state gas company Naftogaz transferred $370 mln to Russian gas giant Gazprom as prepayment for gas supplies as part of $500 mln payment. According to the country’s minister of energy and coal industry Vladimir Demchishin, Ukraine will finalize the planned purchase of 2.2 bln cubic meters of Russian gas by the end of October.
