Ukraine begins importing gas from Russia december 9

Ukraine began importing natural gas from Russia today, December 9, the head of public relations at gas transport operator Ukrtransgaz, Maksym Beliavsky, told Interfax.

He said Ukraine would import 43.5 million cubic meters of natural gas per day in December to meet the needs of Ukrainian consumers. This is being carried out under a contract with Russian gas giant Gazprom.

Beliavsky added that gas imports from Russia began two days ahead of schedule because of a new request from Ukraine's national oil and gas company Naftogaz Ukrainy. The state holding was previously planning to begin importing Russian gas on December 11.

Gas will flow through the Sudzha and Mozyr gas measuring stations.
