PRAGUE, May 16 /ITAR-TASS/. Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka on Thursday night announced a decision to convene a session of the Council for State Security (CSS) in view of a possible termination of deliveries of Russian gas to Ukraine. The session is set for May 20.
The Head of Government said the Czech Republic "is ready for such a situation" but that "we must be able to manifest solidarity with such neighbouring states as Slovakia and Hungary". "Those countries depend in a high degree on the supply (of gas) via Ukraine. The Czech Republic, due to a sufficiently high extent of diversification of the transit of gas and due to its own reserves, is prepared for a contingency that the deliveries of gas via Ukraine will be terminated," Sobotka explained.
The storage facilities of the German RWE Company in the Czech Republic are filled with gas 51%, said the company's representative Martin Halupski.
