Russia is sending less and less gas through Ukraine to Europe.
According to the state news agency TASS, a daily volume of 25.1 million cubic meters will be pumped through the country, 28 percent less than in the past few days.
However, compared to the quantities that previously came via the Nord Stream 1 Baltic Sea pipeline, the loss is relatively small.
The pipelines through Ukraine are the last remaining direct transport routes for pipeline gas to Europe because no gas flows through Nord Stream 1 and 2.
At the end of September, three of the four tubes of the two double strands in the Baltic Sea were damaged by explosions.
Russia had previously shut down Nord Stream 1, Nord Stream 2 had never been put into operation.
It is still unclear who blew up the pipelines.
Despite the war, Russia continued to pump around 40 million cubic meters a day through Ukraine for months afterwards.
Then, at the beginning of this year, the amount gradually decreased.
Gazprom accused Ukraine of not letting through the possible amount.
Russia also transports liquid gas to Europe and pipeline gas to Turkey, from where Hungary, for example, is supplied.
The EU is trying to avoid gas from Russia as much as possible.
