According to him, the Russian side delays negotiations, hoping to replace the power in Ukraine after the presidential elections. "The Russian colleagues very much wait for completion of elections. Their calculation very simple: change of the power - and, perhaps, with the new power it is possible to continue the old agreement which contradicts both the Ukrainian and European legislation. At the end of December when there are frosts and there will be no new contract, Russians hope to repeat that trick which was in 2009 when supply of gas on Ukrainian to a corridor for the European consumers was turned off" — Kobolev on air of Ukrainian TV channel ICTV told. He noted that the Russian side can use such gas crisis including for advance "Nord Stream — 2". According to Kobolev, Russia since 2005 does everything not to transport gas across the territory of Ukraine. According to him, in case of implementation of the Nord Stream-2 and Turkish Stream projects the volume of transit of the Russian gas on the Ukrainian gas transmission system will be reduced to zero. "It opens a way for full Russian aggression. It is that argument which the Ukrainian diplomats, politicians and Naftogaz use in international negotiations" — Kobolev concluded. The current contract of Gazprom and Naftogaz for transit of the Russian gas through the territory of Ukraine works till December 31, 2019 inclusive. On January 21 the tripartite meeting on gas questions in the Russia — European Commission — Ukraine format took place. The Energy Minister of the Russian Federation Alexander Novak, the Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavel Klimkin, the deputy head of European Commission Maros Sefcovic, the head of Gazprom Alexey Miller and the head of Naftogaz Andrey Kobolev participated in it.

According to the Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation Alexander Novak, Russia, Ukraine and the EU will continue consultations on gas questions in a tripartite format at the level of ministers in May, 2019.
