China News Service, August 14. According to Agence France-Presse, on the 13th local time, a Hungarian foreign ministry official said that Russia's Gazprom (Gazprom) has begun to provide additional natural gas to Hungary.
According to reports, Gazprom began to transport more than the contracted amount of energy to Hungary through the "Turkey Stream".
By the end of August, the additional supply will reach 2.6 million cubic meters per day.
The two sides are already negotiating gas volumes for September.
The Hungarian foreign ministry official said that after Hungarian Foreign Minister Sjjardo visited Moscow in July, Russia and Hungary "reached an agreement", so Gazprom has begun to deliver "exceeding the contracted amount" of natural gas.
He said that the Hungarian government had previously decided to purchase about 700 million cubic meters of natural gas on top of the already signed contract.
Furthermore, he pointed out that given the current situation in the European market, it is impossible to obtain such a large amount of gas without Russian sources.
