On February 1-19, Russia’s gas monopoly Gazprom cut gas transit via Ukraine by 24.8% or 28.6 million cubic meters to 86.8 million cubic meters.

That follows from the data posted on the official website of Gazprom, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

According to the data, on February 1, the transit amounted to 115.4 million cubic meters.

On February 17, the transit fell by 18.7% to 94.9 million cubic meters day over day.

On February 18, the transit fell by 7% to 88.2 million cubic meters day over day and fell by 1.6% to 86.8 million cubic meters on February 19.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Gazprom booked additional facilities to transit natural gas in March.

In 2020, the Naftogaz of Ukraine national joint-stock company rendered gas transit organization services to Russia’s Gazprom for USD 2.11 billion.

In December 2019, Naftogaz, Ukrainian Gas Transport System Operator, and Gazprom signed a contract on Russian natural gas transit to Europe via Ukraine.

  • So Muscovy cut gas by 24.8%, yet the Germans still claim Nord Stream 2 is needed. These figures disprove that emphatically, and prove this Russian/German pipe is nothing less than an attempt to control European energy.

    • Considering Putin has shut off the gas spigots to Europe several times, it looks like the Germans are cozying up to Putin to try and prevent that from happening again. Also considering Germany’s permanent disdain for Ukraine it wouldn’t surprise me if the Germans bought Putin’s propaganda that Ukraine was responsible and was “stealing” it, despite what European courts have found.
      It still makes Germany Russia’s bitch and would leave Ukraine poorer and considerably less safe.
