“The EU will support us”: Kiev warned Moscow of the upcoming “gas war”


The first decade of December has ended, and the prospect of concluding a new agreement on the transit of Russian gas through the territory of Ukraine is still very illusive.


Moreover, despite the rapidly passing time, representatives of Kiev rather willingly speculate on this topic, trying to pass off wishful thinking.

As the Intefax-Ukraine, Ukrainian Prime Minister Goncharuk said that in the absence of a new transit agreement from January 1, 2020, a “gas war” could begin between Russia and Ukraine.

According to him, Ukraine is fully prepared for a possible confrontation and is confident that the EU will be on its side in this dispute:

Our vaults are full, our logic is supported by the EU and the Stockholm arbitration decision.

The Ukrainian official expressed confidence that the current unpreparedness of Nord Stream-2 for operation gives Kiev additional arguments in the ongoing transit negotiations.

Previously we wrote that the executive director of the Ukrainian company Naftogaz, Yuri Vitrenko, said that in the absence of a new transit agreement, Kiev would consider the gas supplied to the GTS as ownerless and pump it into its storage facilities.

At the same time, the Ukrainian authorities will evaluate their actions not as theft, but as “ensuring reliable storage”.

    And Ukraine in general should work according to the norms of the third energy package. They signed up for this in March 2015. And if they have been spinning an ox for almost 5 years, then who is their doctor? Not ready - your problems. We are ready. And there are agreements for a year at all.

    - therefore, accordingly, gas will not go there ...

    These are dreams of UKROPs and nothing more ... Poland, too, has already responded to Ukraine’s statements ... And judging by Poland’s response, Ukraine will be able to receive gas from Poland only after the construction of the gas pipeline from Norway is completed and 3-4 times less than it was voiced Plenipotentiaries of Ukraine, but this is not enough independence ...

    Spit on all of you, Russian gas, and to whom we want, we are selling to him, like all world powers! There is a payment - there will be gas!
