The NBU is preparing to drop the transit of Russian gas

НБУ готовится к падению транзита российского газа

Ukraine may receive from the transit of gas in 2020 from a billion dollars to three

The Central Bank expects drop in Russian gas transit with 80 to 50 billion cubic meters, which will cost minus a billion dollars.

The national Bank expects reduction of Russian gas transit through Ukraine in 2020 to 50 billion cubic meters. On Tuesday, August 20, said the Deputy head of the NBU Dmitry Sologub, reports RBC-Ukraine.

As noted by Sologub, next year can be implemented several scenarios in a negative aspect. However, in the baseline scenario, the NBU pledged decrease in transit through Ukraine.

“Next year, we are now laying in the forecast, it will not be 80 billion cubic meters of gas this year, and 50. And it is for our balance of payments minus $ 1 billion,” said Sologub.

At the same time, Sologub noted that in the absence of a contract to transit gas may not be at all.

Recall that in late July, Russia offered Ukraine to extend the contract for gas transit for the year on operating conditions.

In turn, Naftogaz of Ukraine is ready to conclude an agreement on the transit of gas with Russia on the terms proposed by the European Commission.

A new round of gas talks is expected in September.
