Hungary will be able to receive Russian gas through the trans-Black Sea gas pipeline, and not through Ukraine. This was announced on July 4 by the Serbian public television and radio company RTS.

“Srbijagas and the Hungarian company FGSZ have connected the Balkan Stream gas pipeline on the border with Hungary, which will in the future deliver gas from Turkey to Central Europe via Bulgaria and Serbia,” the statement said.

Gas supplies on the new route will begin on October 1.

Srbijagas CEO Dušan Bajatović said they had finally completed their long-term work and Serbia had received another supply route, bypassing Ukraine.
