Gazprom may halt gas transit to Europe in case of unauthorized gas withdrawal by Ukraine
Gazprom sees some risks for gas transit through Ukraine to Europe, and in case of unsanctioned gas tapping by Ukraine it may cut off supplies to the EU, CEO of Gazprom Alexey Miller said, TASS reports.
"Indeed there are risks for gas transit to Europe (via Ukraine). In the contract, which was signed in 2009, we clearly fixed all cases of force majeure. If Ukraine starts gas tapping, then we can either reduce supply by the volume of illegally taken gas or can carry out a disproportionate reduction. But we may stop deliveries all together even after a single unauthorized tapping of gas," Miller said.
