Russia was predicted to be defeated because of the “Nord Stream-2”


British economist and expert on Ukraine Timothy Ash predicted defeat for Russia over Nord Stream 2. According to him, excessive gas supplies to Europe will lead to a collapse in prices, as a result of which Moscow will allegedly remain a loser, the portal NV.ua reports.

The specialist expressed the opinion that the gas pipeline will be certified in the coming months. He stressed that fuel is extremely necessary for European countries, so governments will not let the population freeze and will not allow excessive price increases for consumers.

However, oversupply will ultimately drive gas prices down. “This is why, in my opinion, Russia ultimately loses. It has acted like an unreliable energy supplier, and Europe will accelerate the diversification of energy supplies to reduce its dependence, ”concluded Ash.

Earlier, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov said that the country is ready to offer Europe additional capacities for the transit of Russian gas to Europe as an alternative to the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.

According to him, under the contract with Gazprom, 40 billion cubic meters of gas are supposed to be pumped to Europe through the Ukrainian gas transportation system. He stressed that the capabilities of the system make it possible to ensure the transit of a much larger volume of gas, especially during the crisis period.
