Gazprom, the Russian gas monopolist has been gradually cutting the volumes of gas transit via Ukraine. Serhiy Makohon, the head of Operator of Gas Transport System of Ukraine posted this on his Facebook page.
According to the official, after the launch of Turkish Stream, Turkey, Greece and Bulgaria now receive gas supplies from other gas pipelines. Besides, gas supplies to Romania are now re-routed to Bulgaria, with the aid of the Turkish Stream.

Makohon added that currently, only Moldova gets transit gas supplies across Ukraine. According to him, if the Turkish Stream construction in Bulgaria and Serbia continues, Gazprom will be able to re-route gas transit to Hungary, too.
"For Ukraine, it means additional loss of 10-12 billion cubic meters of transit annually. It is important not to let the construction of Nord Stream 2 to be over", Makohon said. He added that the gas transit is an important element of the country's energy safety.
