KIEV, November 6. /TASS/. Ukraine has not halted natural gas import from Russia and it is currently supplied at the rate of about 40 mln cubic meters daily, head of press service of Ukraine’s gas transport operator Ukrtransgaz Maxim Belyavsky told TASS on Friday.
"Gas for needs of Ukrainian consumers is imported daily in three directions as of the today’s morning: 40.0 mln cubic meters from Russia, 17.8 mln cubic meters from Slovakia, and 0.4 mln cubic meters from Poland," Belyavsky said.
