Ukraine asks EU to prevent building pipelines bypassing country

Ukrainian parliament addressed the statement to the European Parliament and the EU member states, asking them to prevent implementation of the projects for construction of transit pipelines bypassing Ukraine.


A corresponding statement was made on Tuesday at a session of the country’s legislative body with 264 parliamentarians supporting the initiative.

Gazprom, a Russian oil giant, plans to build two new marine pipelines for gas supplies to Europe – under the Baltic and Black seas. At the same time, the question remains open as to concluding with Ukraine a new contract instead of the current one, which is to expire in 2019.

The European Commission has been consistently advocating preservation of a transit route across Ukraine, but at the same time, in October it approved increasing access of Gazprom to Opal gas pipeline, through which Nord Stream gas runs.
