November 12, 2013

Ukraine has stopped buying gas from Russian energy giant Gazprom as of November 8, RIA Novosti reported on November 11, citing Ukraine’s UNIAN news agency.

The head of Russia’s Central Dispatching Department of the Fuel and Energy Complex said Ukraine bought less gas than usual earlier this month before stopping gas purchases completely on November 9.

In the first days of November, Ukraine acquired about 9-10 billion cubic meters of Russian gas daily, about 10 times less than the average amount, Nikolai Orlov said.
