Until now, Russian gas had flowed freely through Ukraine's pipelines amid Russian President Vladimir Putin's invasion.

On May 10, the Ukrainian gas transmission system operator (GTSOU) issued a statement about suspending operations at the Sokhranivka measuring station.

As a result of the Russian Federation's military aggression against Ukraine, several GTS facilities are located in territory temporarily controlled by Russian troops and the occupation administration, GTSOU, via statement, as reported by CNN.

According to the GTSOU, the occupation has "endangered the stability and safety" of the gas transmission system.

The Sokhranivka measuring station is responsible for about a third of Russia's gas that flows to Europe through Ukraine.

CNN reports Ukraine may be able to shift gas volumes to the Sudzha transit point which is further west.

A similar move was carried out in 2020 when repairs were being conducted.

However, Russia's state gas company, Gazprom, claims rerouting the gas would be "technically impossible" and unnecessary.

.

Transit through Sokhranivka was provided in full, there were no complaints from counterparties and there are none.

Gazprom fully fulfills all its obligations to European consumers, supplies gas for transit in accordance with the contract and operator agreement, transit services are fully paid, Gazprom, via statement, as reported by CNN.

Reuters reports that on May 11, Gazprom said the amount of gas shipped to Europe via Ukraine was down 25% from the previous day.

Also on May 11, Yuriy Vitrenko, chairman of Ukraine's state-owned energy firm, Naftogaz, said legal action against Gazprom is on the table.
