Russia's Gazprom on Thursday said the termination of a contract with Ukraine's state-owned gas company Naftogaz, which compensates Kiev if it needs to use its gas to meet additional demand from Europe, would not affect supplies to Europe.

"Termination of this agreement by Gazprom Export does not affect the reliability of supplies through Ukraine," the company said in a statement.
