'The company made such decision, abiding by the agreement on providing oil transportation services across Ukraine. According to its conditions, Ukrtransnafta has the right to stop the intake of the Russian oil, if the raw material does not meet the quality standards', the message says.    

The material damage lies with the Russian side, which failed to live up to its commitments.
