KIEV, January 6 (Sputnik) — Ukrainian imports of Russian gas totaled 14.5 billion cubic meters in 2014, a 1.7-time decrease from 2013, Ukrainian gas transmission operator Ukrtransgas said Tuesday.

“In 2014, 14.5 billion cubic meters of gas were imported from Russian Federation for the needs of Ukraine, which is 11.3 billion cubic meters less than last year’s figure. Thus, the volume of natural gas imported from Russia amounts to 36.2 percent of the total amount of gas that entered the national gas transmission system in 2014,” the company’s press service said in a statement.

According to the pipeline operator, Russia supplied 518.2 million cubic meters of gas to Ukraine in December 2014. As of January 4, Ukraine was receiving 39.3 million cubic meters of Russian gas a day.

In June, Gazprom introduced a prepayment system for gas deliveries to Ukraine in light of Kiev's large gas debt. - Sputnik International

On Monday, Ukrtransgas said that Ukrainian gas imports from Europe increased 60 percent in 2014, reaching 5.1 billion cubic meters.

Russia halted gas supplies to Ukraine in June over the country’s debt that exceeded $5 billion. Until December, Ukraine received gas in reverse flows from a number of neighboring European countries. On December 9, Russia resumed gas sales to Kiev under the so-called winter package, which required Ukraine to repay $3.1 billion of its debt and pay for future supplies in advance.
