Hungary has increased its gas supplies to Ukraine
Hungary has increased daily volumes of gas supplies to Ukraine by 20% - from 5 to 5.9 million cubic meters per day, reports the press service of "Ukrtransgaz."

Hungary had been supplying nearly 5 million cubic meters per day to Ukraine until recently.

The largest supplier of reverse gas to Ukraine was Slovakia. It supplied nearly 1 billion cubic meters of gas to Ukraine, while Hungary delivered only 60 million cubic meters of gas in the first month this year.
