Implementation of the project of the pipeline “Nord stream-2” is a great failure of the Ukrainian diplomacy and leadership. Such opinion on air of TV channel NewsOne was expressed by the Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada from the party “Batkivshchyna” Vadim Ivchenko. The record entry posted on YouTube.
He believes that because of the actions of the Ukrainian authorities, Ukraine will lose billions of dollars, which she regularly received for the transit of Russian gas. According to his calculations, that’s about four billion dollars a year. And this will be achieved not only through implementation of the “Nord stream-2”, but other gas pipelines the Ukrainian side.
“It’s a big failure of the Ukrainian diplomacy, Ukrainian leaders, presidents that we made construction, and now we understand that the buildings we can’t stop” — said the Deputy.
While Ivchenko is convinced that Russia will retain the possibility of pressure on Ukraine, as the basis of trade between the two countries are energy products — coal, atom, gas, fuel oil and gasoline. “Moscow will use this to put pressure on the economy Ukraine”, — says the MP.
Previously, Verkhovna Rada Deputy Vadim Rabinovich, said that the termination of gas transit through the territory of Ukraine will lead to billions of dollars in losses for the Ukrainian budget.
