A total of 194,696 million cubic meters of gas have been imported through Voyany - Uzhgorod pipeline in Slovakia just for the first 13 days of January, according to Eustream.

On January 12, National Joint-Stock Company Naftogaz of Ukraine announced that it intends to resumes gas imports from Europe due to the EBRD credit funds.

Just as reminder: Since the beginning of 2016, Ukraine has stopped supplying gas from Russia, as the proposed by Gazprom price of $ 212 per thousand cubic meters is not acceptable.
