First successes announced in gas and gas negotiations between Russia and Ukraine


About two weeks are left before the expiration of the 10-year agreement on the transit of Russian gas to Europeans through Ukrainian territory. Shortly before this, the executive director of Naftogaz of Ukraine Yuriy Vitrenko called December 13, 2019 the deadline for concluding a contract for the long-term reservation of transit capacities of the Ukrainian gas transportation system.


And so, on December 13, 2019, Yuri Vitrenko (son of the famous Ukrainian "progressive" socialist Natalya Vitrenko) said TASSthat the transit negotiations between Naftogaz Ukrainy and PJSC Gazprom in Vienna (Austria) were “successful”. However, the parties failed to reach concrete agreements, therefore, work continues, i.e. negotiations are underway. In his opinion, the very existence of negotiations is "it is already a success."

Relatively successful. We are continuing to work. This is already a success.

- Euro-Atlantic optimist Vitrenko commented on the situation.

The top manager said that the main topic of communication was the continuation of gas transit from Russia to Europe through Ukraine since 2020. Whether it is a question of an additional agreement to an existing contract or a conversation is about a new contract, he did not specify.

It must be recalled that bilateral negotiations, i.e. without the European Union, took place on November 28, 2019 in Vienna. They were attended by the head of the Ministry of Energy of Russia Oleksandr Novak, the head of the Ministry of Energy and Environmental Protection of Ukraine Oleksiy Orzhel, the Chairman of the Management Board of PJSC Gazprom Oleksiy Miller, the heads of NAK Naftogaz Ukrainy and the Operator of the Gas Transmission System of Ukraine. They also discussed the prospects for Ukraine’s direct purchase of gas from Russia and the “package solution” of judicial disputes.

    What a luck. Interestingly, when will the gas connection become cheaper in Russia? lol And let’s say diplomatically. This question is a little expensive.

    In general, we agreed to continue to agree.
    And Miller is silent. Where he is in a hurry, January 1 will come by itself.

    Negotiating with maidanophiles is a betrayal of the motherland, try to negotiate with leeches, bugs or plague rats. They do not agree with the infection, they destroy it.

    So why in 2014 did not destroy. Afraid, however?
    Boycott, isolation, and all that? ..

    Russia will shake up and play patriotism, and then agree to all the conditions of fascist Ukraine. If on federal channels in various talk shows, Ukrainians, Psheks and Chukhons openly insult Russia, call for its destruction, and even receive money for it from the same Russia, then the author speaks of national pride.
