Russia Shipping Gas

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia -- Russia has resumed natural gas shipments to Yugoslavia, officials said Monday, following a delay of weeks after Hungary banned the use of its part of the pipeline because Belgrade had failed to repay a $20 million debt.

There was no immediate confirmation from Hungarian authorities that they had indeed allowed the shipments to Yugoslavia, where shortages of oil and gas are huge after the NATO bombing this year destroyed key refineries.
