The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, discussed with Russian President Vladimir Putin the issue of gas transit through Ukraine. She wrote about this on her Twitter page.
“Good to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the margins of the Berlin Conference. We spoke about the Ukraine-EU-Russia trilateral gas agreement via Ukraine,” she wrote.
Since the beginning of 2020, the Russian company Gazprom has sharply reduced gas supplies in transit through Ukraine. In particular, on December 30, the volume of deliveries through Ukraine amounted to 262.3 million cubic meters per day, and on January 7, transit decreased to 91.2 million cubic meters.
And also Ukraine will be able to receive 6,6 billion cubic meters of gas from Poland per year. This was stated by the Executive Director of Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine Sergiy Makogon on Facebook.
"Ukraine already has two connections with the Gas Transmission System of Poland: Drozdovichi and Hermanovychy. Recently, we have undergone reconstruction and we are ready to receive up to 6,6 billion cubic meters of gas per year from our side," Makogon wrote.
