    Russia’s Gazprom has increased its natural gas supplies to Germany as Europeans are stocking up on fuel ahead of the winter season.

    The average daily supply of Russian gas to Germany in July was 13 higher than in June and 29.7 percent more compared to the same period of last year, Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller said on Monday.

    He also said that the company was no longer pumping gas to Ukraine and would resume supplies on a pre-paid basis only.

    Ukraine's Naftogaz said in June that it would stop buying gas from Russia's Gazprom from July 1 pending agreement on new terms of supply, but said it would ensure continued transit of Russian gas to Europe.
