Serhii Makohon, head of the Ukrainian GTS Operator, wrote on his Facebook page that Gazprom was gradually reducing gas transit through Ukraine. After the launch of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline, transit to Turkey, Greece and Bulgaria was completely transferred to new gas pipelines.
Also, from April 1, gas supplies to Romania are fully provided by Bulgaria through the Turkish Stream.
At the moment, transit through Ukraine is carried out only for consumers in Moldova.
If the Turkish Stream construction through Bulgaria and Serbia is completed, then Gazprom will also transit gas to Hungary through the Turkish Stream. For Ukraine, it is an additional loss of 10-12 billion m3 of transit annually.
“It is essential to prevent the completion of the Nord Stream 2 construction. Gas transit through Ukraine is not only a significant income but an important element of the energy and military security of Ukraine,” he stressed.
To recap, Gazprom will not revise the contract for gas transit with Ukraine.
As reported, gas transit through the territory of Ukraine decreased by 25% in February.
