Gas to flow?
- Slovakia is to lift the current restrictions on the use of natural gas
by companies on Monday.
Bratislava says that there are several scenarios under which it may
happen, beginning with a possible resumption of supplies from Russia
via Ukraine, if not, then there's a promise by Ukraine to implement a
swap arrangement Russia-->Ukraine and Ukraine-->Slovakia, and there's
apparently a done deal about supplies from some EU countries via the
Czech R. Bratislava says that even if the first two do not
materialize, the restrictions will be lifted thanks to the
arrangements with fellow EU members.
