Tomorrow, August 23, Kyiv Energy Minister Herman Galushchenko, US Energy Minister Jennifer Grengolm and German Economy and Energy Minister Peter Altmeier will discuss the situation with the launch of Nord Stream 2 and the transit of Russian gas.
According to an UNIAN correspondent, this was announced by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky at a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Kyiv.
Today, I think that no one will argue that the main risks due to the completion of Nord Stream-2 will be borne by Ukraine among all countries. We really discussed with Ms. Chancellor the issue of extending the agreement on gas transit through Ukraine after 2024, but so far I think these are very common things, “Zelensky said.
According to him, an important meeting will take place on August 23.
“Three energy ministers will meet – the United States, Ukraine and Germany, and maybe more specific things will appear there,” Zelensky added.
