Russia for several months lost hundreds of millions of dollars in Ukrainian transit


Yuriy Vitrenko, executive director of Naftogaz Ukrainy, told the Ukrainian publication OilPoint that the Russian Gazprom is losing a lot of money on gas supplies to Ukraine.


The fact is that under a 5-year contract, the Russian company undertook to supply 178,1 million cubic meters to Ukraine every day. m of gas under the condition of “pay or download”, that is, first Gazprom pays the Ukrainian side for the gas volumes under the contract, regardless of the real transit, and then it supplies gas as much as it is really able to do.

So, in the first four months of this year, the transit of "blue fuel" may reach 15,6 billion cubic meters. m, the contract also provides for a volume of 21,6 billion cubic meters. m. Moreover, the difference in money is $ 190 million, which is a loss to Gazprom, as the Russian company has already paid this money to Ukraine. In April, real deliveries already make up about 84% of the contracts, which gives hope that Gazprom will straighten its transit costs by the end of the year.

Most of all, gas supplies decreased through the Yamal - Europe gas pipeline. In May of this year, the terms of the agreements between Poland and Russia for transportation are coming to an end, and the Russian group may be preparing for new terms of the contract.

        Not! It is yours trying to prove that there was a war, and that Russia lost it.
        But alas, there was no war, there was and will be competition in the world oil market. At this stage, everyone remained with their own. As Peskov said, "there are no losers." Russia achieved its goals, namely, it involved almost all major oil producers, and especially the United States, in participating in the deal, thereby eliminating the possibility of substituting foreign oil for its traditional sales markets. Also, Russia saved its oilmen from possible American sanctions and additional. duties on the American oil market. The United States, according to Trump himself, avoided the collapse of its shale production and the loss of up to three hundred thousand jobs. Now, even if the shale oil companies cut production, it’s very smooth, and Trump will have one less problem on the eve of the election.
        It is more difficult for the Saudis. If, according to real analysts (not Marzhetsky), the price of oil stabilizes at $ 45-50 per barrel, then their foreign exchange reserves will last 3-4 years, then fffsё. But during these 3-4 years, something may change, for the better for the SA. So the Saudis also have hope.

      As a transit monopoly of ALL goods in Russia (receiving money only for something that passed through the territory of Ukraine), Ukraine in a terrible struggle won a crushing victory over Russia. Russia no longer wants to transport anything through Ukraine.

    Russia for several months lost hundreds of millions of dollars in Ukrainian transit ???
    The United States lost a lot more due to shale oil losses.
    Russia least of all has lost in all respects, but in the USA, LOSS in the economy goes to TRILLIONS !!!
    Russia will be able to safely survive these and other losses, but the United States will not be able to.
    USA rolls into the abyss! The United States dug a coronavirus pit for China and Russia, and fell into it themselves.

    Surname Trump in direct proportion to the meaning of the word TRUMPLIN!
    BUT, movement, with its help, can go in different directions, including, and SHARP down!
    All the actions of Trump as president of the United States, indicate that he acts as a driver of all kinds of crisis in the United States. Therefore, nothing good should be expected for the United States. Every month it will be worse and worse in the USA! Slowly but SURE the US is sliding into the abyss.
    The American democratic “bolivar” will not withstand the total crisis in the United States and will collapse with a jump into the abyss with reliance on the TRAMPlin.

    TRAMPLin proclaimed with its presidential slogan - "Let's make the United States great again." And judging by his cases and the cases of American bigwigs from criminal politics and criminal business, we get the slogan exactly the opposite.
    TRUMPlin and American crime bosses will do everything possible to ensure that the United States collapses into the GAP of crisis and devastation.
    Gorbachev came to help ruin the USSR, and Trump came to overwhelm and ruin the STATES !!!
    What we are observing now. The United States and the road, what the "doctor" TRAMPlin prescribed.
    The overthrow of Trump will not lead to anything good for the United States. This will be the GKChP, but only in the American criminal democratic version.

    American democracy is the most atrocious and barbaric in the world.
    Only Russia can stop this American, democratic board, TERRORISM!
    How? The time will come and you will know everything.

    I hope that with the cessation of transit through Ukraine, the “losses” will also disappear.

    It’s not entirely clear what the essence of “zrada” is.

    In April, real deliveries already make up about 84% of the contracts, which gives hope that Gazprom will straighten its transit costs by the end of the year.

    If I understand correctly, a certain amount of transit is paid for a year, while pumping is 16% behind the norm. This is problem? If not right, tell me - in what?

    123, read carefully. And do not be upset by the level of your education. Or is education not necessary for fans?

    - Oh well ... - what are the losses ... - This is just the payment of Gazprom (or rather, the Russian taxpayer) for almost the only real "channel of supply" of Russian gas, and Zap. Europe ... - There wouldn’t be this channel .., now Lukashenko would also begin his “tricks” to revise tariffs for transporting Russian gas through Belarusian territory and at the very price of Russian gas ... - Moreover, Lukashenko would put forward Russia has "new requirements" ... - so that for the transportation of gas through the territory of Belarus - Belarus would raise prices; and for Russian gas itself - Russia would have lowered the price for Belarus ... - So Russia (not Gazprom ... would have figured it out today) - Gazprom would have contemplated all this from the outside) with all this for a long time and to no avail .. . - And Lukashenko would at the same time "invite" to his place "to visit" the division of American marines ...- for the "exchange of experience" ...
