When Russia launches the Nord stream-2 project, half of the Ukrainian gas transportation system can be safely cut into scrap metal.

About this on air of the Ukrainian TV channel “LOT”, said Vice-President of the Academy of economic Sciences of Ukraine Anatoliy Peshko, the correspondent “Politnavigator”.

“For Western Europe and Germany, the flow of gas along the bottom of the Baltic sea is much shorter and cheaper than transit through the territory of Ukraine,” admitted on Foot.

He noted that Germany strongly supports the development of this corridor, as evidenced by the statements of many German politicians, in particular – former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder.

“This is a very authoritative figure, and if he deals with this issue, there is little doubt that Nord stream 2 will function, “the expert stressed.

“If Nord stream-2 will operate, half of our gas transportation system, in fact, can be safely cut into scrap metal. Because it is at thirty billion cubic meters of gas, which will remain, goes only to self-sufficiency. At the same time, only one branch will be involved, which is directed to Western Europe,” Anatolii Peshko added.
