Gazprom to Cover European Exports 'Stolen by Ukraine'
Gazprom Deputy Chief Executive Alexander Medvedev said at the press conference: "... gas supplies to Europe will be restored in full, in accordance to their contract. However, the situation in which Ukraine continues to steal gas and we continue to supply European customers can't continue indefinitely."

Turkmen Gas

Gazprom will buy 30 billion m³ of Turkmen gas this year, including 15 billion m³ in the first quarter, which means there is no room for Ukrainian gas in Turkmenistan's pipelines, the company said in an e-mailed statement yesterday.

Turkmen President Saparmurat Niyazov confirmed his country will sell Ukraine 40 billion m³ this year, according to a statement on Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko's Web site, following a telephone conversation between the leaders.
