We knew at what development of events such a scenario could be realized.

Ukrainian Energy Minister German Galuschenko made a resounding statement.

According to him, if with the launch of & # 8220; Nord Stream & # 8211; 2 & # 8221; gas supplies through Nezalezhnaya will decrease significantly, and then Kiev will reorient the gas system for internal needs.

According to the hypothesis of Galushchenko, after the launch of the gas pipeline & # 8220; Nord Stream-2 & # 8221; only 10-15 billion cubic meters of gas per year will be pumped through Ukraine.

This will not allow the gas transportation system to function fully, so it will pump 30 billion cubic meters of gas needed for the country's needs.
