Ukraine illegally tapped 50 million cubic meters of Russian natural
Ukraine illegally tapped 50 million cubic meters of Russian natural gas bound for European consumers, a spokesman for Russian energy giant Gazprom said Sunday.

"Over the past 24 hours, we fed 295 million cu m of gas into the Ukrainian gas transportation system, that is a bit more than requested by European consumers, but we had only 270 million cu m on the output. They stole 25 million. Minus 25 million cu m RosUkrEnergo does not get from Naftogas for its export operations," Sergei Kupriyanov said.

Russia cut off gas supplies to Ukraine on Thursday after last-ditch talks on Kiev's outstanding $2-billion gas debt and a new contract for 2009 failed late on New Year's Eve.

Some European countries, including Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania, have said that Russian gas deliveries through the Ukrainian pipeline have fallen.
