Slovakia has signed a deal to deliver natural gas to Ukraine, which is facing the threat of a cut-off in supplies from Russia because of a massive debt. Under the deal, Slovakia will reverse the flow of gas in a pipeline from which it usually gets gas from Ukraine. To be able to send the gas, some technical changes are still needed that might take several months. Slovak officials said Ukraine could get up to 10 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year through the pipeline.
