It was said by the executive commercial director of Naftogaz Yury Vitrenko, the UNN tells. "Russia wants that Ukraine didn't gain transit income. For the Ukrainian GDP it is approximately so much how many Ukraine spends for army - it is actually to leave Ukraine without an opportunity to finance defense. I will remind that economic damage from loss of transit to Ukraine in percentage expression - 3%. It is more, than loses the Russian Federation because of all sanctions which are inflicted on it" — Vitrenko has told. Earlier the head of Gazprom Alexey Miller said that Gazprom can keep transit of gas through Ukraine after 2019 of 10-15 billion cubic meters a year, but at the same time the Ukrainian side has to prove economic feasibility of the new contract for transit. Later the vice chairman of the board of Gazprom Alexander Medvedev specified that the volume of transit of the Russian gas through Ukraine after 2019 will depend on conditions of the new contract. At the same time the Minister of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine Igor Nasalik said that Ukraine will insist on preservation of transit of the Russian gas after 2019 of not less than 40 billion cubic meters as otherwise it will be economically unprofitable.
