Russia's state-owned Gazprom natural gas company said today it will not tolerate Ukraine diverting gas meant for European customers.
Gazprom spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov said that Ukraine is using up more than its consumption limit and that gas meant for European customers "is not even reaching the border."

He reiterated that Russia had not agreed to allow Ukraine to raise its consumption due to the unseasonably cold weather, RFE/RL informed.

Oleksiy Ivchenko, the head of Ukraine's Naftohaz state energy company admitted on 26 January that in January Ukraine will exceed the maximum amount allowed under its deal with Gazprom.

Ivchenko said Ukraine will have to pay a higher price for the excess amount.

Gazprom's Kupriyanov said on 25 January that Ukraine had already used up its January quota.
