Czech Republic to begin sending natural gas to Slovakia on Sunday

The Czech Republic will begin sending natural gas to Slovakia at 8 am on Sunday morning, a spokesperson for the biggest Czech distributor RWE Transgas said on Saturday. Slovakia is completely dependent on gas from Russia and has received no supplies for 11 days. Gas has never previously crossed the Czech-Slovak border from west to east. Reductions in gas supply to some large industrial plants in Slovakia will come to an end on Monday, said a representative of the Slovak Ministry of the Economy.
