Naftogaz Ukraine has yet to make an announcement 

The Russian gas monopoly Gazprom claims it has received a letter from the Ukrainian state-owned gas and oil company Naftogaz to resume gas supplies in the second half of 2016 and the first quarter of 2017.

This is according to the Chairman of Gazprom's Management Committee Alexey Miller, Interfax-Ukraine news agency reports.

"Indeed, yesterday we received an official letter from the head of Naftogaz-Ukraine requesting to resume Russian gas supplies. The term is nine months: second half of 2016 and the first quarter of 2017", Miller announced.

"So, it will be the upcoming winter and the period of preparation to it. The tone change of the Ukrainian company is clear. A daily gas reverse flows from Europe shrank in June by 6,4 times comparing to May and by 16,8 times comparing to April", the Russian company head commented on the matter.
