The last week's prices for fuel in Ukraine have dropped insignificantly, the A-95 Consulting Group reports.
Specifically, the average current price of liquefied gas is USD 0.47 per liter, while the price of a liter of diesel fuel makes USD 1.02. A liter of A-95 petrol costs just about the same, USD 1.02.
Comparing with the last week's prices, this week the price rates decreased by less than a dollar.
Earlier, Russia's energy giant Gazprom reported that the Nord Stream II pipelines would start working in early 2020. In the case of the launch of two gas pipelines with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters per year, Ukraine will lose $ 2-3 billion in revenue from the transit of blue fuel through its gas transmission system, which is almost 3% of GDP. Commissioning of the Nord Stream 2, the cost of which is estimated at 9,5 billion euros, is scheduled for the end of 2019.
Previously, the German economy minister said that implementation of the Nord Stream II project is still possible, as long as Ukraine's vital interests are observed.
'The project may be approved if, at the same time, Ukraine's vital interests are kept. One of them lies with the assumption that even after 2019, the gas transit from Russia via Ukraine should remain at a decent level', the minister said.
