Earlier, Ukrtransgaz reported that the Russian natural gas transit through the gas transportation system of Ukraine since the beginning of the second decade of July fell by 24.7 percent.

Recall that Russia wants to lay a gas pipeline to the EU bypassing Ukraine. Nord stream-2 builds Gazprom jointly with European companies.

Against a new pipeline actively promotes Poland, and Germany supports the opposite.

Recently it became known that Germany has expelled five projects from the plan of expansion of Nord stream – 2 due to their “unreliability”.
