This is true "despite the new situation concerning transits of natural gas across Ukraine and information about suspension of Russian gas supplies to the country," the company said in a statement quoted by Tanjug.
“According to information published so far, we can conclude that gas deliveries through Ukraine to all European and Turkish clients of the Russian company Gazprom will continue in full volume and in line with all previously signed agreements, while only deliveries to Ukraine will be suspended,” the release said.
Srbijagas is in constant contact with both the Russian partners and the Energy Community, all with the aim of ensuring regular and stable supply of natural gas to the Serbian market, Srbijagas said.
Gazprom said earlier in the day that it completely stopped natural gas supplies to Ukraine, after Kiev said they would cease purchasing Russian gas.
Gazprim CEO Alexei Miller explained that Ukraine failed to to make an advance payment for July deliveries, and that the company "won't deliver gas to Ukraine at any price without prepayment."
