Ukraine faces a long and cold winter, Prime Minister Yatseniuk warned on Friday, saying the country needs a further 5 billion cubic metres of Russian gas and may need to import coal due to the impact of the conflict in its industrial eastern regions. Months of fighting between government forces and separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine has forced coal mines to cut production or close entirely, imperilling the country's electricity market. Asked in a televised interview if he thought Ukraine could survive without Russian gas, Yatseniuk said: "No ... The situation (in winter) will be extremely difficult." Ukrainian state-owned gas company Naftogaz has put aside $3.1 billion to buy gas for the forthcoming winter period, he said. Ukraine has also been trying to secure more gas from the European Union and cut consumption levels from last year's 50 billion cubic metres (bcm).

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen condemned Russia on Friday for sending a "so-called humanitarian convoy" into Ukraine without the consent of Kiev and accused it of escalating the crisis. Kiev accused Moscow earlier on Friday of launching what it called a "direct invasion" of its territory, while Russia warned against any attempt to disrupt the convoy which it said was a purely humanitarian operation. "It can only deepen the crisis in the region, which Russia itself has created and has continued to fuel," Rasmussen said in a statement. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said more than 100 trucks had crossed the border, of which only some had been checked earlier by Ukrainian officials inside Russian territory.
