In Ukraine, they told how Russia “outwitted” Europe

KIEV, 23 oct. The Ukrainian gas transportation system can provide up to 146 billion cubic meters of gas to Europe at competitive tariffs, said CEO of the Ukrainian GTS Operator Serhiy Makogon during the Ukrainian Gas Investment Congress. However, in order to be completely competitive, you need an appropriate field for competition – with the same rules, requirements, opportunities and conditions for all market players. right, “he said. An expert on Ukraine predicted Russia's “defeat” because of Nord Stream 2. At the same time, Makogon added that Ukraine had fulfilled all the requirements of the European Union – it had unbundled the GTS operator, introduced transparent tariff setting, as well as European energy legislation and network codes. “The next step is for the EU, because first of all Europe will suffer from Gazprom's monopoly on gas transit,” he said. Macogon said that the certification of Nord Stream 2 AG as the operator of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline will be indicative of the EU's energy solidarity principle. “. In his opinion, this violates the requirements of the EU Gas Directive and will allow the Nord Stream 2 operator to remain part of the Gazprom group, that is, under the control of the dominant market player and without the ability to independently and impartially ensure gas transportation through the corresponding gas pipeline. for the further development of the gas market in both Ukraine and Europe, it is important to preserve the physical transit of gas through the territory of Ukraine, provide access to foreign traders to Ukrainian UGS facilities, increase gas production to Ukraine and improve energy efficiency and prepare for the transportation of renewable gases. purchases of gas from Russia, and instead pumps into the storage facilities the fuel purchased on the reverse in Europe and has repeatedly stated that it does not plan to resume direct supplies. The Germans criticized Berbock because of the words addressed to “Nord Stream – 2” Earlier, Germany and the United States issued a joint statement, which refers to measures to support Ukraine, European energy security and common goals to protect the climate. It formulates a number of conditions for the operation of Nord Stream 2. In particular, the United States and Germany stated that in the interests of Ukraine and Europe to continue the transit of Russian gas through Ukraine after 2024, Berlin undertakes to use all available levers to facilitate the extension of the gas transit agreement between Ukraine and Russia for up to 10 years, including the appointment of a special envoy to support these negotiations, to begin no later than September 1, 2021. In particular, Germany pledges to seek sanctions against Russia if it uses energy as a weapon against European countries. Russia and Ukraine at the end of 2019 signed a package of agreements on the continuation of gas transit through the territory of the republic, including a transit contract for five years. according to which Gazprom guarantees the pumping of 65 billion cubic meters of gas in the first year and 40 billion in the next four. These arrangements ensured that transit continued beyond the expiration of the previous contract.
