A similar statement regarding his country was made by Ambassador-at-Large for Energy Security at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic Vaclav Bartuska.

"The standard contracted volume of gas of around 80-90 mln cubic meters per day is delivered to Slovakia via Ukraine," Eustream said.

Meanwhile, when providing comments to reporters on the halt of Russian gas being pumped to Germany through the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline, Bartuska stressed that Russia did not restrict its supplies to EU countries, adding that there is no threat of disrupted gas deliveries, including to the Czech Republic.

"Russia’s redistribution of gas transportation does not concern us [Czech Republic]," he said, adding that the Russian gas currently flows via the Nord Stream gas pipeline commissioned a decade ago.
