Moscow - A spokesman for Russian top natural gas producer Gazprom said on Tuesday gas supplies to the European Union were stable and that he had no information on a possible supply cut.

A source at Gazprom said Russia was supplying Ukraine with the usual volumes of gas.

Russia had given Ukraine until 10:00 a.m. (08:00 SA time) on Tuesday to pay off at least some of its gas debts or face a reduction in supplies.

Russia, Ukraine and the European Union have agreed to continue talks about Russian gas supplies to Ukraine after overnight negotiations ended without any firm agreement on price. - Reuters
