Russian gas turned back on

Text size Aa Aa

Russian gas deliveries to Europe via Ukraine have restarted this morning, on the orders of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

But while the gas taps have been turned back on, it is still going to take up to 36 hours for supplies to be fully restored. The move comes after a deal was struck to resolve a dispute with Ukraine over unpaid bills. Russia halted deliveries at a time of freezing temperatures across the continent, and numerous countries in Europe were affected.
