Kiev, May 15 - Ukraine has asked Russia to compensate it for the damage caused by the loss of offshore energy reserves in Crimea following the peninsula's incorporation by Moscow.

Didenko said Kiev asked Moscow to pump 2 billion cubic metres of natural gas into Ukraine's underground storage reservoirs as compensation for the loss of Chornomornaftogaz, a company which pumps oil and gas from the Black Sea shelf.
