Transit of Russian gas through Ukraine to Europe has dropped?

Transit of Russian gas through Ukraine to Europe has dropped almost 50 percent in the first four months of this year against the same period last year, Ukraine`s energy ministry said on Wednesday, Reuters reported.

Russia transported 23.2 billion cubic metres of gas through Ukrainian territory to Europe. European consumption of gas has fallen sharply as a global economic downturn bites.
