Kiev, November 23 - Neftegaz.RU. Ukraine is able to become a gas country that satisfies its own needs and exports. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said this in an interview with the German newspaper Die Zeit, Ukrinform reported.


«The Ukrainian gas transmission system was built for delivery of Russian gas to Europe. The capacity of the pipeline system is 146 billion m3 of gas per year. At present, 90 billion are used. The system is reliable. We consider the construction of Nord Stream 2 as follows: Russia wants to make Europe hostage to its gas, this idea is another hybrid weapon against Europe».


«As soon as energy market will be dependent on Russia, it will halt supplies. Can you call any guarantee that Russia has given recently and respected it? We want to become a gas country that satisfies its own needs and exports. We can do it by 2025. And you can benefit from investing in Ukraine and getting energy from another source,» the prime minister stressed.


According to the head of the Ukrainian government, the battle against external threats is also being carried out. Among them are Kremlin’s aggressive attempts to humiliate Ukraine's transit capabilities in favor of the Nord Stream 2 project.
