Can Gas Fall Off The Back Of A Lorry?

Russia's state gas monopoly Gazprom says that it turned the taps back on to supply Europe with gas via Ukraine pipelines earlier today.

But Gazprom says that the cheeky chappies in Ukraine are keeping the gas for themselves, with it's transit lines remaining closed.

Gazprom is quoted as saying that "the amount of Russian gas pumped into Ukraine's pipeline network must strictly correspond to the amount of gas flowing out of Ukraine."

Ukraine meanwhile has repeatedly denied that it is stealing gas, it is merely "using some of the Europe-bound gas as fuel for its pumping stations."

I think we can safely say we haven't heard the last of this one.
