Censor.NET reports citing the head of Ukrtranshaz PR-department Maksym Biliavskyi's Facebook.
"Ukraine does not receive gas from the temporarily occupied territory of Crimea. ''Ukrtranshaz" has no such information," Biliavskyi commented the alleged supply of gas from Crimea to Henichesk in the Kherson region.
"The daily gas consumption in Henichesk is 31,200 cubic meters, and the local mining produces much more gas. Therefore, the statement of the occupants is nothing but PR and propaganda," the official said.
Earlier, the Russian news agency "Interfax" informed that Russian president Vladimir Putin ordered to help Henichesk with gas supplies. It was reported that Henichesk residents asked the head of Crimean occupation administration Sergei Aksionov for a gas supply. Later, the authorities of the occupied Crimea said they started to supply gas to Henichesk.
