Poland resumes reverse gas flow to Ukraine
Poland has resumed full deliveries of gas to Ukraine, Warsaw and Kiev confirmed on Friday.
“Today morning gas deliveries from Poland resumed,” Ukraine's Ukrtransgaz said in a statement.
Spokeswoman of Poland's state pipeline operator Gaz-System Malgorzata Polkowska also confirmed to RIA Novosti that gas deliveries to Ukraine have resumed “in compliance with the client’s wishes.”
The state gas company PGNiG hasn’t provided immediate confirmation.
On Wednesday it stopped deliveries, after Poland saw a sharp drop in gas flowing from Russia this week. Kiev blamed Russia’s Gazprom, saying it was pressing the country ahead of the cold winter.
Gazprom refuted the allegations saying that gas supplies were stable and at the contracted 23 million cubic meters a day.
Later the company clarified that Poland was talking about requested, not contracted gas, demand which Gazprom isn’t obliged to satisfy.
Germany and Austria also said there was a drop in Russian gas deliveries.
