Bulgaria: Gazprom Suspends Gas Deliveries to Ukraine

Russian energy concern Gazprom has stopped supplying UKriane with gas, with CEO Alexey Miller saying Kiev is failing to make the payments needed.

A prepayment system was introduced by Moscow last year, amid a gas pricing dispute that started soon after Crimea was incorporated into Russia.

Interfax quotes Miller as saying Ukraine has issued no new supply requests.

Russian daily Kommersant, on the other hand, says Ukrainian officials are accusing Russia of not abiding by earlier gas contracts.

Ukraine's gas reserves are currently estimated at 2 million tons, and amount that will only be enough for less than a month.
