Naftogaz refused to block the valve since January 1 2020


The management of the Ukrainian Naftogaz is trying to hold Russia responsible for the problems that European consumers may experience this winter as a result of the suspension of transit due to Ukraine’s reluctance to sign a new contract.


Naftogaz’s executive director, Yuri Vitrenko, said in an interview with Deutsche Welle that the letter that the Ukrainian company received from Gazprom clearly stated the time for the gas supply to the Ukrainian gas transmission system to be cut off, and this is a “frightening”:

You read it, and Levitan’s voice stands in his ears.


Vitrenko further noted that Naftogaz will not close the valve on its part, but simply upload it to its storage facilities and will “securely store it”. In his opinion, such actions are neither theft of someone else's gas, nor intimidation by Ukraine against Gazprom.

Recall that the contract for the transit of Russian gas to Europe through Ukraine ends on December 31, 2019, and despite the disastrously short time remaining until its end, the parties still have not reached consensus on a new agreement. In addition, relations between the parties are complicated by a number of lawsuits in international courts, the consideration of which has been going on for many years in a row.

    ... the time for gas cutoff to the Ukrainian GTS is clearly indicated.
    ------
    just uploads it to their storage and will “securely store” it

    I must have been bad at school. Or Mr. Vitrenko knows the secret of the philosopher's stone. What exactly will Naftogaz "securely store" if there is nothing in the pipe except air?

    - Another almost "identical" topic about gas for these two days ...
    I can only add the following ...
    - Russia (Gazprom) is wasting valuable time in vain and does not come up with an independent official counter proposal to Ukraine to conclude a new long-term agreement on the supply of Russian gas through Ukraine ...
    - And ... - not only representatives of the Ukrainian Naftogaz should meet with representatives of Gazprom to resolve this issue, but also representatives of the Ukrainian government elite ... - This should look like a major political act ... to resolve issues of economic interstate importance. ..
    - The faster Russia proposes a solution to this issue (with its program), the more advantages Russia will have ...
    - The initiative should come only from Russia ... -It should have been done "yesterday" ... -It's a pity if this does not take place or if it is delayed (too late) ...

      Gas transit through Ukraine should be stopped. A long-term contract should not be considered absolutely. This should not even be discussed.
      Russia does not need this contract. Who needs it - let it come out with its proposals.

      Irina is a simple question. Just to make one point clear. Why was Gazprom awarded a fine of almost 5 billion greens? Given the netting, they reduced it to 2,6 billion. Can you say a few words?

      No, well, look, this is the spouted friend of Ellochka the cannibal, who also knew one gorgeous word that made Ellochka awe.

    No contract - no transit. Though you turn the valve on your side, at least do not turn it, the gas will no longer be in the pipe.
