KIEV Aug 13 (Reuters) - Ukrainian state-owned gas company Naftogaz said on Wednesday European companies should look into purchasing gas on the Russia-Ukraine border, warning of potential disruptions to supplies arising from the gas pricing row.

"Naftogaz considers it its duty to warn European partners of possible risks," the company said in a statement.

The firm also said that any Ukrainian sanctions against Russia would not necessarily lead to "automatic sanctions" against Russian gas monopoly Gazprom. (Reporting by Natalia Zinets; Writing by Alessandra Prentice; Editing by Richard Balmforth)
