ROME, November 26. /TASS/. The situation with Russian gas supplies to Italy is stable and gives ground to no worries over Russia’s stopping gas supplies to Ukraine, Italian Minister of Economic Development Federica Guidi said late on Wednesday.
"The current situation with gas supplies to Italy gives no grounds for worries. Our technicians are keeping an eye on the situation and as of yet we have registered no changes in the volumes of Russian gas, which stay stable," she said.
According to Guidi, the country’s gas storage facilities are 90% full, since the heating season is only beginning. She noted that her country has alternative gas sources and in case of gas shortages it would employ plan B mechanisms.
Russia’s gas giant Gazprom said on November 25 Ukraine’s Naftogaz had pumped all the pre-paid gas volumes as of ten in the morning. According to Gazprom, Ukraine has made no advance payment for more gas. Neither has it ordered more gas. Hence, gas supplies to Ukraine have been halted until it makes further payment, Gazprom said.
