Ukraine turns off Europe-bound gas from Russia

Ukraine has cited “force majeure” to potentially halt a third of Russian transited gas flows to Europe from Wednesday, while Russia’s Gazprom claims there have been no issues that would justify the move.

Gazprom has received no confirmation of force majeure or any obstacles to continued transit of gas through a junction in Lugansk Region, the company said on Tuesday, after Ukraine’s operator OGTSU announced it would halt further deliveries starting May 11, due to the presence of “Russian occupiers,” reported Russia Today.

Gas Transit Services of Ukraine (OGTSU) declared force majeure on Tuesday, saying that it was impossible to continue the transit of gas through a connection point and compressor station located in the Lugansk area.
