Ukraine admitted that they do not know how to declare off the Russian gas

Yuri Vitrenko, Executive Director of Naftogaz of Ukraine, admitted that he did not know what the company would do after the termination of Russian gas supplies. Ukraine has already appealed to European partners, but the action plan has nrot yet been developed. Vitrenko hopes that after the trilateral talks with Russia and the European Commission at the end of May, a solution will be found. He also added that the timing will be tight. The hopes are pinned on the “enemy”: Kiev will offer to book for 10 years 60 billion cubic meters of its transit capacity of the gas transportation system. And this despite the fact that previously the prices were called “transcendental” and generally tried to receive through Europe discounts and payments.
The production of gas in Ukraine is decreasing, and the project to increase it failed miserably. In addition, if the “Nord stream — 2” and “Turkish stream” are put into operation, the Ukrainian gas transportation system will be unnecessary for Gazprom at all. Drowning “Naftogaz” tries to do anything with this.
Its representatives also noted that transit increases. Kiev with horror assumed that it can deprive of gas already in 2020, and now Russia simply stores gas for Europe. Gazprom, however, stated that it was simply preparing for scheduled repair work on the Yamal — Europe gas pipeline. But as they say, fear has big eyes.
The head of “Naftogaz of Ukraine” Andrey Kobelev sure that the country will lose 4% of GDP.
Having no official confirmation of their guesses, the representatives of the Ukrainian joint-stock company have already accused the partners of preparing a “gas war”. Gazprom refused to comment on this.
