The expert told why Zelensky offered a discount on gas transit


SIMFEROPOL, 23 oct. The words of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky on the discount on transit to Europe in excess of the volumes of gas established by the contract are dictated by the desire to preserve the gray financial schemes through a virtual reverse and ensure the supply of gas taken from the transit pipe to Ukrainian consumers, Boris Martsinkevich. Earlier, the head of the Ukrainian opposition party “Batkivshchyna” Yulia Tymoshenko said that her country had always used Russian gas, and called the situation with the purchase of “European” gas “a big deception.” Ukraine turned to Germany because of “Russia's use of gas as a weapon” “Transit service is pumping gas from a point on the border to a point on the border. transit, $ 32 per thousand cubic meters) are put in your pocket, this is a usual gray scheme. There is no physical reverse, there is an exclusively financial reverse, when only according to the documents it was clear that the gas went to Europe and returned from Europe to Ukraine, “Martsinkevich said. According to the expert, the main problem for Kiev is that it takes a lot of money and time to implement a real, physical reverse of gas from Europe to Ukraine – to re-equip the transit route, as well as the source of supply itself. then it will be necessary to maintain pressure from west to east, that is, at least all compressor stations located on the border must be switched to interconnector mode. takes time and costs a lot of money. If there is no such pressure, this will be the biggest disaster, since 8 gas outlets from the Ukrainian GTS provide gas to 44 settlements of Ukraine, which in this case remain without gas, “the expert said. According to Martsinkevich, the authorities in Kiev are making statements to preserve gas transit for two main reasons. “They mix Russian”: they complained about the quality of gas in Ukraine “There are two reasons: one is the fear that the financial scheme will disappear. European spot prices. And second: that the energy security of Ukraine is being violated, because it is technically unclear how (without transit from the Russian Federation – ed.) to provide end consumers, “Martsinkevich said. Advisor to the General Director of Gazprom Export LLC, Doctor of Economics, Professor Andriy Konoplyanik noted earlier that Gazprom's agreements on gas supplies to Hungary outside the territory of Ukraine mean not only a decrease in the possibility of a virtual gas reverse, but also a decrease in the ability to receive unjustified income for the gas transit that was not actually carried out.
