National company Naftogaz Ukrainy points out that Ukraine does not siphoned off Russian gas without authorization.

“Declarations of Gazprom officials about unapproved extraction of 100 mln cu m of Russian gas on January 1 are absolute lie,” declared Eduard Zenyuk, Nagtogas press secretary.

According to him, if Ukraine allegedly siphoned off Russian gas without authorization, then Gazprom delivered gas into the gas-transport system of Ukraine also without authorization. Zenyuk noted that in this case Russian gas might be considered as contraband, UNIAN reported.

Zenyuk also informed that gas from Turkmenistan reaches territory of Ukraine for 36 hours, therefore, January 1 Ukraine was receiving Turkmen gas, contracted in 2005. According to his conviction, Gazprom Vice-President Alexander Medvedev’s accusations against Ukraine are groundless.

In his turn, PM’s press secretary Valentin Mandrievsky declares that Ukraine will follow the previous contracts concerning gas supply till new ones have agreed.
