Ukraine could lose substantial revenues because of the Turkish stream

Ukraine will annually lose $500 million on gas transit.

Ukraine will be an annual event to lose more than $ 0.5 billion as a result of the launch of Turkish stream. On Tuesday, October 24, said at the conference Oil and gas-2017 Chairman of the Board of Naftogaz Andrey Kobelev, reports UNIAN.

“It is obvious that the first line of “Turkish stream” will become a reality within a year. Whether the second string is an interesting question. Each thread eats off of our GDP large amount of money – approximately $ 0.5 billion.”, – said Kobolyev.

According to him, depriving Ukraine of the revenues from gas transit – is the practice of the Russian government, against which Ukraine should fight jointly with European companies.

We will remind, Naftogaz of Ukraine in the period of temporary restriction of the operation of the OPAL gas pipeline received additional revenues from gas transit in the amount of about $300 million.
