In this way, European companies will be able to buy gas from the border point of gas networks in Russia and Ukraine, as Ukraine itself and will not buy gas directly from Gazprom and from European suppliers. However, this plan has not been put into effect, and in turn formally requested Germany to Ukraine will stop gas supplies to Europe. In the Russian media does information emerged that Ukrainians mass insure and buy heaters for the winter.
