In a month it is planned to complete the construction of the first branch of “Tureckogo stream”.
In Russia claim that after the launch of the gas pipeline “Nord stream 2” and “Turkish stream” Russian gas transit through Ukraine will fall 10 times. This was stated by the Chairman of the Board “Gazprom” Alexey Miller, reports Rus.Media.
At the same time, according to him, the full termination of transit through Ukraine is not.
“We are not saying that we completely block the transit through the territory of Ukraine. Because there is a neighboring state, there are regions that are located on the border with Ukraine from Europe and without a doubt, delivery to these regions of Europe will be carried out in transit through the territory of Ukraine. Another thing is that the amounts that will be without a doubt less significant. Perhaps it could be about 10-15 billion cubic meters of gas a year,” Miller said.
In 2017, Ukraine is transported 93 billion cubic meters of gas in 2016 – 82 billion cubic meters.
“Talks should be held. In any case, these are not the conditions that we obtained in the framework of the lawsuit in the Stockholm arbitration”, – said Miller on the modalities of future cooperation.
Earlier on Tuesday, Gazprom announced that construction of the first line of the “Turkish stream” will be completed in a month.
