12 countries received no Russian gas at all yesterday. They were: Austria, Bulgaria, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Bosnia, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Romania, Serbia and Turkey.
France, Italy, Germany and Poland said their supply from Russia was markedly down.
Slovakia becomes the 2nd country (after Bulgaria) to float the idea of starting a nuclear reactor shut down as part of their EU accession agreement. They may restart a 440 MW unit at Jaslovske Bohunice. The Slovak PM, Robert Fico, said: "If Slovakia remains hostage to a dispute between Russia and Ukraine in the following days, and if non-standard measures have to be taken, then I can imagine restarting Jaslovske Bohunice as a non-standard measure."
