The contract is valid until the end of March 2018, its volume is more than 60 million cubic meters. Delivery began on Friday, March 2, at 6 a.m. through the node Hermanowice that connects the Polish transport system with the Ukrainian.
“The current situation of gas supply, indicates that our decision regarding the diversification of sources of supply was correct. Thanks to the partners from Poland failed to make another attempt of Moscow to use gas as a political weapon against Ukraine. I hope that the EU and the respective governments of the member States will take this situation into account before you make a final decision on Nord Stream 2”, – commented the head of “Naftogaz” Andrey Kobelev.
