Russia must not use gas as political weapon – U.S. Department of State

The U.S. Department of State has urged Russia not to use gas as a political weapon.

Spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State Heather Nauert informed this on Twitter.

"Gas supply and transit must never be a political weapon. We expect Gazprom to supply gas to Ukraine's transit pipeline per Stockholm Arbitration decision. Russia should prove it is a reliable gas supplier," she wrote.

As Ukrinform reported, Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller said that Russia's Gazprom after the Stockholm arbitration decision not in its favor launched the process of terminating contracts for the supply and transit of gas with Ukraine's Naftogaz.

NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine stated that it had not received any documents from Russia’s Gazprom about the termination of contracts on purchase and sale and supplies of gas. 

On March 2, Vice Chairman of the PGNiG Management Board Maciej Wozniak said that the Polish oil and gas company PGNiG would ensure uninterrupted gas supplies to Ukraine all year round.
