"Gazprom" collapsed transit through Ukraine, in Kiev they talk about the risk of war

The Russian corporation Gazprom has sharply reduced the volume of gas pumped through the Ukrainian GTS since November 1. This was told by the head of the company "Operator GTS of Ukraine" Serhiy Makogon. According to the functionary, transit has fallen by a third and is currently only 57 million cubic meters per day.

Since October 1, transit through Ukraine has dropped to 86 million cubic meters of gas per day. At the same time, Gazprom pays for the transit capacity of 109 million cubic meters. Since November 1, transit through Ukraine has once again decreased - to 57 million per day

- ascertained with sadness Makogon.

Earlier, the head of Naftogaz, Yuri Vitrenko, said in an interview with the British newspaper Financial Times that the launch of Nord Stream 2 would create all conditions for Russia for a military invasion of Ukraine.

There will be no physical transit through Ukraine, the chances of a full-scale war between Russia and Ukraine with all its consequences increase dramatically

- the functionary considers.

Vitrenko is sure that Ukrainian transit is still a constraining factor for Moscow. However, Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly made it clear that the Russian side is ready to extend the current contract for pumping gas, if it has economic expediency.

    "At Solovyov's" in the broadcast, they are constantly surprised that Ukrainian tanks firing at Donbas are filled with Russian fuel and demand to stop the delivery of fuels and lubricants to Ukraine. Gas - is it from the same series?

    Are they really sick there or are they pretending?

    Why should Makogon be sad? Gazprom pays for the contracted 109 million cubic meters, and how much it actually pumps is absolutely irrelevant ... the "pay or download" formula was invented by Kiev itself.

      It doesn't matter until 2024. In the meantime, Russia demonstrates that it is possible to do without Ukrainian transit.

      Gazprom has already met the contractual figures for transit. In advance. And now he can afford to screw it. There is nothing to find fault with. But there is nowhere to select a virtual reverse either. The result is a combination of three fingers.
      1.Export of thermal coal was cut off from November 1.
      On November 2.1, Ukraine lifted the moratorium on electricity imports from the vicious aggressor and "self-proclaimed" Lukashenko. And then, suddenly, it became clear that there would be no import. Neither from the Russian Federation nor from Belarus.
      3. And they pressed down the transit of gas so that there was nowhere to take it away.
      In Ukraine, the experts have not yet arrived in the morning, what happened. And by the end of the day, Marunich is already in shock.
      And they ask the question: We are then for sho? Nobody remembers that they abducted a Russian citizen in Donbass.
      These three points together - a disaster that was expected every winter, but Putin pitied them, idiots.
      Well, finally, they waited ...

        Um ... and the pumped 57 million per day is not enough for Kiev to "tyril" gas?

          They're not just poking around. They pretend to buy gas from a European hub and transport it from there. That is, they agree with Hungary and Slovakia that they will order more gas than they need and pretend that this amount has passed. But in fact, Ukraine took a part. All in advance in the course, all in the share. But now (under a new agreement) gas will go to Hungary through Turkey. That is, half of the reverse is covered. This year, transit (under the contract) fell from 65 billion cubic meters to 40 billion. And already last winter, Slovakia refused to transit Ukraine, because it had to. In the current situation it will be the same. Ukraine will not have enough. There will be nothing to pump into the UGS facility, at any price. And Makogon is responsible for pumping transit gas. It just won't work. The situation changed in December 2019.

        That is, do you think that they themselves have declared check and checkmate? There are two conclusions here - either our six-legged brothers are complete imbeciles (which I have no doubt about), or our great grandmaster's multi-move came to a result, which finally cannot but rejoice.

          Most likely, the team of clowns is not able to calculate the consequences and believed that, since it had been rolling all these years, it will now.
          I worked as a deputy head / head in the USSR. workshop. So in January, the preparation of an action plan for preparation for the next heating season began. The chiefs were given a task (and the execution of such tasks was controlled by the UASKI computer system) "to submit proposals for preparing for the winter period." Then the OGE analyzed the proposals, gathered meetings with the Chief Engineer, put together a preparation plan, put it under the control of UASKI, and began (already in the spring) to implement this plan.
          So in Ukraine (according to the local sane experts) this year they planned the first meeting on the upcoming heating season for 22 of October!
          What kind of professionalism can we talk about ...

      Less pumping, less opportunity to steal from the pipe and all kinds of fictitious reverses. And there is also a greater chance that the low pressure pipe will simply stand up. So they get nervous.

    To maintain pressure in the pipe, at least something must remain
