Gas transit via Ukraine should be retained

Nippon TV format Mother has already been sold into Turkey and South Korea

While gas deliveries through the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline will ensure a stable gas price for end consumers and ensure the competitiveness of European industry, Wolfgang Büchele said.

"We have already discussed this topic, we took into consideration the opinion of Ukraine's President on this issue". "You can just ask us, instead of investing ten billion Euros into the construction of Nord Stream-2", he concluded. But in March Germany issued the final permits needed for construction on its territory and in its waters.

But critics argue it will increase dependence on Russian Federation and enrich its state-owned energy companies at a time when Moscow stands accused of endangering European security.

Nord Stream 2 is opposed by countries such as Poland and the Baltic states for allegedly increasing European Union reliance on Russian gas.

The Russian gas giant Gazprom is overseeing a partnership of European companies to build a 750-mile (1,200km) pipeline on the bed of the Baltic Sea to bring gas from the Yamal peninsula up to the German coastal town of Greifswald, from where it would be fed into the European grid.

Gazprom has said that there will be no resources for transit through Ukraine in previous volumes, as Russia's gas production recourse base is shifting northwards. He offered to supply the gas through Ukraine.

An industry group that promotes economic ties with Russian Federation pushed back after Merkel's comments, saying Nord Stream guarantees western European energy security and that 4 billion euros ($4.9 billion) already invested in the project would be at risk.

Sebastian Sass, a Nord Stream spokesman, said the pipeline won't dry up gas transit through Ukraine.

According to energy firm Naftogaz expectations, Ukraine will earn around $3 billion in 2018 from transit.

But a German industry group that promotes economic ties with Russian Federation pushed back after Merkel's comments, saying on Tuesday Nord Stream guarantees western European energy security and that €4 billion ($4.9 billion) already invested in the project would be at risk.
