The Ukrainian head of state noted that the gas pipeline “Nord stream-2” is absolutely a political project. “There need to invest 15-20 billion, and we have the system ready,” – said Poroshenko.

According to the President, Ukraine is ready to transport 150 billion cubic meters, not 94-97 cubic meters, which was transported last year.

“That is the construction of “Nord stream-2″ – throwing to the wind 20 billion – is absolutely economically meaningless. And I say to the leaders of the European Union: just make the gas that you buy is more expensive, and its economy is uncompetitive. You act, in this case, not only in the interests of Ukraine. You act in the interests of unity of the EU and of EU competitiveness. And I want to assure you that my voice is like the voice very well heard”, – said Poroshenko.

Answering the question, how Ukraine’s interests are taken into account, the President said: “It can be a variety of options – starting from the fact that Ukraine will be guaranteed to not decrease the volume of transit”.
