Ukrainian gas monopoly Ukrtransgas said on Wednesday that the amount of Russian natural gas pumped to European customers fell 7 percent in 2018 to 86.8 billion cubic meters.
Russian President Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday (December 4th) that Russia may continue to deliver gas to Europe via Ukraine, even after the launch of the "Northern Stream-2" gas pipeline.
He noted that the issue depends on Kiev.
The Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly expressed his position on the continued transfer of gas through Ukraine.
"He said that the talk was not about stopping the transfer of gas through Ukraine with the launch of the" North - North 2 ". It is possible to continue this transfer, but this is due to the Ukrainian side. "
It is worth noting that Putin has repeatedly stressed the continuation of these supplies because of economic benefits. Gazprom also expressed several times its willingness to continue to transport gas through Ukraine after 2019, if Kiev proves the economic benefit of the contract. End 25 n
