Russia warns there may be oil-stoppage due to unresolved problems with Ukraine

28-12-2009

Russia has warned the European Commission it might halt oil supplies to Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic over an unresolved dispute with Ukraine. Although Slovakia has confirmed receiving a warning from Brussels, the Czech government says it has as yet received no official announcement.

Trade and Industry Minister Tomáš Bartovský said on Monday there was no cause for immediate concern since the Czech Republic had oil reserves for up to three months.
