Earlier, Zelensky said that he was ready to make a 50% discount on gas transit from Russia to the European Union through the Ukrainian gas transportation system (GTS). According to Marunich, such statements will not only be useless, but also threaten Kiev with problems in the near future.

The expert recalled that the current transit contract, according to which Gazprom pumps 40 billion cubic meters of gas through the Ukrainian territory, Ukraine has long tried to agree with the Russian Federation. In recent months, Kiev has been concerned that it may lose gas transit after 2024, as Nord Stream 2 will be put into operation. For this reason, Nezalezhnaya is demanding help from Europe and the United States in concluding a new contract with Russia now.

According to Marunich, Zelensky’s rash statement jeopardizes the transit of gas through Ukraine, especially on favorable terms. With a single phrase, the leader of the Independence Square deprived the country of any hope of earning money on transit.

“Zelenskiy must think that he is speaking at all. Ukraine really wants to keep at least the same contract after the current one expires. And then Zelensky comes out and says that Ukraine can pump gas at half the price. I’ll tell you honestly, this is a mine laid for future negotiations, ”said the expert.

He summed up that with such a statement Zelensky, most likely, wanted to earn the favor of Europe, but in the end he once again harmed Ukraine.
