Ukraine to pump gas to EU if Russia supports transit
KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine will guarantee the full transit of Russian gas to European customers if Gazprom delivers additional gas to keep the system running, the chief of Ukraine's state-run energy firm told Reuters on Thursday.
"Should Gazprom resume deliveries of gas to the Ukrainian border for onward transit to Europe, Naftogaz guarantees it will pump in full the volumes received, on the condition that Gazprom will guarantee and supply technological gas for Ukraine's gas transit system to function," Oleh Dubyna said by telephone.
