Head of Naftogaz Vitrenko: there is not even a hint of negotiations with Russia on gas transit about Russia's unwillingness to negotiate a new gas transit agreement. He said in an interview with Reuters that there is not even a hint of negotiations.
“There is nothing, not even a hint, formal or informal negotiations … We are discussing with the Americans and Germans that we would all like transit continued, but the Russians do not want to start these discussions, “Vitrenko said.
In mid-November, Vitrenko said that if the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline was launched, Ukraine would lose about two billion dollars a year. According to him, this is equivalent to about one and a half percent of the country's GDP.
