Once the Nord Stream 2 is completed, Ukraine might be tempted to explode gas pipelines to stop the transit.
Every year Ukraine earns 3 bln USD on gas transit, according to CEO of Naftogaz Andriy Kobolev. In addition, Ukraine invests in the modernisation of the the GTS. In 2018 - 2027, Ukraine plans to invest additional 60 bln UAH (almost 2 bln EUR).
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin recently informed that Ukraine is interested in signing a new transit agreement, but only if it would be concluded in accordance with the European gas market rules.
