The Economy Ministry hasn't received any official warnings regarding possible cut-offs in oil supplies from Russia to date, the TASR newswire wrote. However, the situation is being closely monitored, according to a statement issued by the ministry's communication department on Tuesday, November 23.
The statement came in the wake of news published by Czech internet portal novinky.cz earlier in the day that cited Russian daily Vedomosti as indicating that oil supplies coming from Russia via the Druzhba pipeline to Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary may be jeopardised during the coming winter months.
