KIEV, February ./TASS/. Gas deliveries have been restored to Ukraine’s south-east, the head of Ukraine’s national energy company Naftogaz Ukrainy said on Thursday.
"We had a most difficult situation today," Andrey Kobolev said. "Our team could not approach the pipelines that had been destroyed. Now we have got this opportunity, and supplies have been restored," he told reporters.
Earlier on Thursday, representatives of the self-proclaimed Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics said gas supplies had been stopped. Naftogaz Ukrainy said gas transmission infrastructure had been damaged by warfare.
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev ordered the Energy Ministry and Gazprom on Thursday to prepare proposals on humanitarian gas supplies to south-east Ukraine.
"I would like the Energy Ministry to prepare jointly with Gazprom proposals on providing humanitarian aid through gas supplies for the needs of these regions, unless urgent measures are taken for their provision with gas using the customary scheme," Medvedev said.
"In any case, people should not be freezing and that is why you need to prepare the necessary proposals," the Russian premier said.
