The supply of natural gas from Russia to Europe via the Yamal gas pipeline has been stopped, Russian monopoly Gazprom said, Reuters reported.

The transit of natural gas through Ukraine continues in accordance with customer requests, the company said.

About 15% of Russian gas is delivered to Europe and Turkey through the Yamal gas pipeline.

Since December, supplies have been reversible, which further increases natural gas prices in Europe, BNR reports.

Greece is taking steps to reduce its dependence on Russian gas
