Ukraine wanted to buy gas from a supplier not affiliated with Gazprom

In anticipation of the trilateral gas transit talks to be held on September 19, Ukraine is trying to pretend that it does not need Russian gas or its transit through its territory.

According to the Ukrainian company Naftogaz, in its release, which unexpectedly appeared two days before the negotiations, Ukraine contracted 2020 million cubic meters of gas for a "major international trader" in the first quarter of 450.

The release emphasizes that this contract will be executed regardless of the actions of Gazprom. At the same time, the Ukrainian company refrained from voicing the name of the supplier company.

As if enhancing the effect of this message, the head of Naftogaz’s gas business, Andrey Favorov, emphasized that the Ukrainian storages are filled with additional volumes of gas, and the country's gas transportation system is ready to work without reference to transit.

However, the primitive tricks resorted to by the Ukrainian company, whose head, in view of the lack of funds for the purchase of gas a week ago, asked the population to pay for winter gas right now, are unlikely to mislead the representatives of Russian Gazprom and the Europeans who volunteered to mediate in these negotiations.

In any case, the wait is short, and in just a few days it will become clear what awaits Ukraine and its GTS.

    An article from the series “Ukraine will definitely freeze this year” - aren't you tired? In reality, they are not doing so badly, the record amount of gas since 2011 was pumped into storage facilities and they continue to pump. “he asked the population to pay for winter gas” - he didn’t ask, but suggested that everyone should fix the summer price, and these are completely different things, the gas price for the population was reduced by 34%. In the event of a transit interruption for the GTS, they have already found application as a storage facility and five companies have already become interested in the offer. He is negotiating the supply of Qatari gas through the Trans-Balkan gas pipeline and supplies from the United States from January 1, 2020. So I want to upset the "cheers of the patriots" - they will not freeze either this winter or the next.

      And no one needs them to freeze ... At least until this summer, Russia supplied Ukraine with any amount of TVELs, coal, and even electricity at times when it was needed during accidents at nuclear power plants ..

      Russia is Ukraine’s largest trading partner. It will be necessary - they will deliver gas, oil, and coal.
