Gas transit through Ukraine fell to minimum values: war is ahead


Now economic the situation of Ukraine at war with its own people is in a deplorable state. The situation is aggravated by a decrease in the transportation of Russian gas through Ukrainian territory, which is why Kiev is losing huge amounts of money. In order to prevent Russia from completing the construction of Nord Stream 2, which will put an end to the already small Ukrainian transit, Volodymyr Zelenskyy may intensify hostilities in the Donbas. This opinion was expressed by VGTRK correspondent Andrei Rudenko.


After the start of operation of the Turkish Stream pipeline, Ukraine lost about 15 percent of its GDP due to the reduction in transit. Since April 1, gas supplies to Romania have been carried out from Bulgaria through the "Turkish Stream", and if Russia uses it to transport "blue fuel" to Hungary, Kiev will lose about 12 billion cubic meters of transit every year. If Nord Stream 2 is launched, gas supplies through Ukraine will drop to zero, which means that Kiev will no longer receive gas money, as well as reduce the country's energy security.

Sergei Makogon, head of the Ukrainian GTS Operator, also writes that the Russian Federation is reducing the volume of Ukrainian transit. In his opinion, Ukraine must do everything to prevent the launch of the Russian gas pipeline on the bottom of the Baltic Sea.

Now Kiev earns about 7 billion dollars on the transit of gas fuel, and if the state treasury loses these revenues, the economy may collapse, and the country - disintegration. As "help" in solving the problem, the West is pushing the Ukrainian leadership to intensify hostilities in the east of the country in order to draw Russia into the conflict, in order to prevent the latter from completing the construction of the SP-2.

The intensification of flights of US transport aviation with military assistance in the direction of Ukraine indicates that Kiev has made a decision. War is ahead!

- Andrey Rudenko thinks.

    In general, according to the statement of Kiev - they have been fighting in dreams for 7 years soon. And we conscientiously and decently continue to supply the enemy with fuel, electricity, paper, food ..... A question to the expert - if we are at war - why do we officially broadcast about a nasty partner and continue to do business with him ??? If we are not at war, then stop screwing up your partner and continue your shitty business without pathos with God and beyond. Just stop lying to the people or about this or that.

    What nonsense? How will Russia reduce supplies to zero after the commissioning of the sp-2? For the first year, Russia is simply obliged under the contract to pump 60 billion a year through Ukraine, and the next 4 years at 40 billion. per year. Or is Russia ready to pay itself a penalty to the detriment of the contract and become an unreliable partner, undermining its reputation?

      Simply.
      The pipe is old, it may turn out to be full of holes, not capable of pumping the required volume, large losses during transportation. Repair and modernization required. 4-5 billion dollars.
      Offer to Europe, do it at its own expense. Renouncement.
      And that's all.

      It may sound strange at first glance, but this is not nonsense. Yes, according to the agreement, Russia will pay for pumping 40 billion tons, while it can redirect gas through the SP-2. In this case, no one needs to pay for pumping, the pipe has its own. But for Ukraine this is a problem. The entire virtual reverse is bursting at the seams, the circuit is covered with a copper basin. Europe will now have to buy gas for real, and not take it along the transit route. You will need to redirect the pumping in the opposite direction, from west to east, and this is not just a valve to unscrew and open the other. And you also need to think about gas storage facilities. The east of Ukraine in winter may remain completely without gas. We'll have to buy it directly from the aggressor country, and this, as you yourself understand, is splendid, especially after the refusal of the Mordorian vaccine. Onizhedets will again start drawing figwams on the clown's residence. And the most unpleasant thing is that the flow of finance into the pockets of intermediaries sitting on the reverse scheme will stop. This is very sad for them.

        Russia will not be able to redirect the volumes of gas that go through Ukraine via cn-2. The contract specifies transit through the territory of Ukraine and their gas transportation system, therefore, under the agreement, Russia will drive 40 billion cubic meters of gas through their gas transportation system for another 4 years

      Read carefully the terms of the gas transit contract between Naftagaz and Gazprom. There is one condition that has never been in previous contracts - "download or pay". This condition means that Gazprom must pump a certain volume of gas through the Ukrainian GTS annually, for example, 40 billion cubic meters in 2021. Gazprom can pump this volume of gas, Gazprom can pump a smaller volume of gas, Gazprom may not pump anything at all, but ...... Gazprom is still obliged to pay for pumping 40 billion cubic meters. m of gas per year

      Ukraine refused to pay off its three-yard debt and did not care about its reputation. What prevents Russia from spitting on the treaty. Moreover, we are not talking about the termination of supplies. It's about changing the transit route.

    Under the contract, gas must circulate until 2025. Although, according to rumors, Gazprom is slowly dismantling pipes and equipment.

    In order to prevent Russia from completing the construction of Nord Stream 2, which will put an end to the already small Ukrainian transit, Volodymyr Zelensky may intensify military operations in Donbass. This opinion was expressed by VGTRK correspondent Andrei Rudenko.

    If Zelensky goes to this, then Biden will tell him that the President of Ukraine is Putin's agent, because full-scale military operations on the territory of Ukraine are a reason to shut off all taps on the Russian-Ukrainian border, in order to prevent pipe damage, gas losses, fires and explosions, as well as interruptions in the supply of hydrocarbons to the west, as a result of which the laying of the SP-2 will be accelerated and approved by all interested parties. And whose bombs, shells, missiles will damage the pipes, go figure it out. So let the great prezik of the great country think about what Biden will tell him after that.

    There will be no war. Kiev is well aware that in the event of a war, the regime in Kiev will fall in a week. Eastern Ukraine is not at all inclined to fight against Russia. In the event of a military conflict, Russia in a matter of days or hours will sweep away all Bendery power in Eastern Ukraine ... Why do I say so. My brother lives in Kharkov. Every week he writes about the mood of Kharkovites. People there fiercely hate the Bendera government ... And in the event of the arrival of Russia, all these Ukrainian Nazis and Bendera people will not be in good luck. It's just that there are no uniting people in Eastern Ukraine who could resist the Ukrainian junta ... or they are deep underground ...

    Now Kiev earns about $ 7 billion on the transit of gas fuel,

    The author! This is the sum of the contract for all 5 years, not a year. And he does not earn anything. He just gets paid. As long as they pay.

    The Bandera attack on Donbass can be regarded as force majeure circumstances for the termination of gas transit altogether. The Kremlin will simply have to stop the transit flow.

    Brad!
    1. For transit, $ 3 billion instead of $ 7 billion
    2. According to the last contract, download or pay scheme.
    Therefore, Ukraine does not care about the volume reduction.
    But after the launch of the SP-2, everything will change.
