“Gazprom supplies Russian gas for transit through Ukrainian territory in the volume confirmed by the Ukrainian side via the Sudzha gas pumping station – 41.5 mln cubic meters as of September 16. The nomination for the Sokhranovka gas pumping station has been rejected,” he said. On Friday, September 15, the pumping rate stood at 42.4 mln cubic meters.
