In the state Duma has considered the request to dismantle the pipes for transit through Ukraine

The Ukrainian side could take for the dismantling of transit pipelines the repair or replacement of pipes, said state Duma Deputy Vladimir Gutenev in the comments of the RNS.

Earlier, the head of the operator GTS of Ukraine Sergey Makogon has informed that "Gazprom" has started work on dismantling the transit pipeline.

"Most likely, the Ukrainian side is not true. Perhaps we are talking about the overlapping sections of the pipelines, because such areas are essential for the implementation of certain technological processes", — said the MP.

He stressed that any changes to the transit through Ukraine, according to the provided energy information is not provided.

At the end of 2019, Russia and Ukraine signed a package of agreements on transit for a period of five years. It involves pumping 65 billion cubic meters of gas in the first year and 40 billion in each of the four remaining. The parties also resolved financial claims against each other.

At the same time Ukraine has repeatedly stressed that the completion of the construction of "Nord stream – 2" will put an end to the transit of Russian gas through the territory of the country. In April makohon stated that Kiev authorities will do everything possible to prevent implementation of the project.
