Earlier, German government spokesman Steffen Seibert stated that it is extremely important for Berlin to maintain Ukraine's status as a gas transit country even after Nord Stream 2 is put into operation. At that, Russian President Vladimir Putin's statement that Ukraine must show a good will if its wants Russian gas transit to Europe and related fees to remain has provoked irritation and criticism in Germany.
