Ukraine began exporting gas to Hungary. The Chief executive officer at Naftogaz Ukraine Andriy Kobolyev wrote this on Facebook.

According to the report, Ukrtransgaz will export gas from Ukraine.

“Ukrtransgaz began first gas export from Ukraine to Hungary,” Kobolyev wrote.

This was a test, but more could follow depending on price spreads and available domestic production, according to the companies.

Earlier, Peter Szijarto, the Hungarian foreign minister stated that Russia and Hungary agreed on the supplies of the Russian gas in 2020 - even without the agreement on gas transit between Kyiv and Moscow.

According to him, Hungary can purchase part of the natural gas via Austria, like it was done this year; in addition to that, the Hungarian side can use its own gas depots. 

In April 2018, Russian energy monopolist Gazprom declined the option to extend the gas contract with Naftogaz company. The Russian side stated that the talks on the gas transit across Ukraine have not begun yet, merely assuming such possibility.
