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 has been and will be competition in the world oil market. At this stage, everyone remained with their own people. As Peskov said, "there are no losers." Russia has achieved its goals, namely, has drawn practically all large oil producers, and above all the United States, to participate in the transaction, thereby eliminating the possibility of replacing foreign oil with its traditional sales markets. Also, Russia has saved its oil workers from possible US 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, if shale producers will cut production, it will be very smooth, and Trump will have one less problem on the eve of the elections.
        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 based on the TRUMPLING.

    TRUMPLIN proclaimed his presidential slogan - "Make the United States Great Again." And judging by his deeds and the deeds of American tycoons from criminal politics and the 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 now seeing. There is the USA and the road, what "Doctor" TRUMPLIN ordered.
    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 termination 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 a loss ... - It's just a payment by Gazprom (or rather, a Russian taxpayer) for almost the only real "supply channel" of Russian gas, and Zap. Europe ... - There would be no this channel ..., then now Lukashenko would also start his "freaks" on revising tariffs for the transportation of Russian gas through Belarusian territory and at the very price for Russian gas ... - Moreover, Lukashenko would have put forward Russia has "new requirements" ... - so that Belarus would raise prices for the transportation of gas through the territory of Belarus; and for the Russian gas itself - Russia would lower the price for Belarus ... - So Russia would "figure it out" today (not Gazprom ... - Gazprom would only contemplate all this from the outside) with all this for a long time and to no avail .. - And Lukashenka would "invite" a division of American Marines to visit him ... - for "exchange of experience" ...
