The Russian Foreign Ministry assured that Moscow is not going to prematurely abandon the Ukrainian gas transit


Kiev is anxiously awaiting the inevitable completion of the construction of the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, fearing large financial losses. However, the Russian Foreign Ministry assured that Moscow will continue to fulfill its contractual obligations for the transit of fuel through Ukraine.


According to Dmitry Birichevsky, head of the Department of Economic Cooperation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, after the launch of the JV-2, the Russian side will not shy away from transit gas supplies through Ukraine, provided for by the relevant agreements.

Now the contract is valid, and then there will be negotiations between Gazprom and their partners in Ukraine

- emphasized Barichevsky in an interview RIA News on Monday May 31st.

The Foreign Ministry spokesman assured that the Kremlin does not set itself the goal of using gas flows in political purposes, and if the subject of negotiations is interested in further gas supplies and prolongation of the existing contract, the transportation of "blue fuel" will continue.

The statement of the Russian ministry was a response to the words of the head of the company "GTS Operator of Ukraine" Sergei Makogon that due to the operation of "Nord Stream-2" Ukraine will lose about $ 1,5 billion and another 2-3 billion - due to the purchase of more expensive fuel from Europeans.

    But what about the media announced that everything, there will be no gas either here or there ???

    And so politically correct:

    and if the subject of negotiations is interested in further gas supplies and prolongation of the existing contract, the transportation of "blue fuel" will continue.

    They say money is separate, politics is separate ...
