Russia supplying gas as humanitarian aid to Eastern Ukraine

Russia started supplying gas to rebel-held eastern Ukraine today (19 February) after Kyiv suspended supplies because of damage to the networks from heavy fighting, which is continuing despite a ceasefire.
Responding to an order from Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to supply gas to east Ukraine as humanitarian aid, gas company Gazprom said it had started supplies via the Prokhorovka and Platovo pumping stations on the border with east Ukraine.
Gazprom's Chief Executive Officer Alexei Miller said gas deliveries were reaching 12 million cubic metres of gas per day (cm/d).
Sergei Kupriyanov, a Gazprom spokesman, said the 12 million cm/d was in addition to the 30 million cm/d Ukraine was already receiving, taking total deliveries to 42 million cm/d.

 According to Luhansk People's Republic's leader, Russia has begun gas deliveries to eastern Ukraine.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russian gas has started flowing to the territory of self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk (DPR and LPR), LPR chief Igor Plotnitsky told RIA Novosti Thursday. 
“The gas has been flowing, everything is fine,” he said. “No problems at the moment.”

Trying to keep an eye on many situations ongoing globally!

Syria-
Don't forget Libya-
A nation destroyed by NATO- NATO taking it to the next stage- Dividing it up.

    Expect a renewed sanctions push in wake of the latest Greek "deal". Another aside, the timeless buffet has just done a German buyout in wake of US moving planes into Germany...
