Hungary halts natural gas transit to Ukraine indefinitely

Ukrainian company says deal breaches market principles

(ANSA) - Trieste, September 26 - Hungary said Friday it would indefinitely halt the transit of natural gas to Ukraine after Prime Minister Viktor Orban sealed a new deal with Russian company Gazprom. Hungarian pipeline operation FGSZ interrupted the flow of gas, claiming a sudden rise in internal demand.
    FGSZ has been providing Ukraine with 6.1 billion cubic metres of gas a year since March 2013. Ukrainian company Naftogaz said the move was unexpected and breaches European energy market principles.
