Peskov: Gas Transit Through Ukraine to Be Possible After Launch of Nord Stream 2

Russian gas transit through Ukraine may be continued even after the launch of the Nord Stream-2 pipeline, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.

"Actually, this transit will be possible, but again, everything depends on the Ukrainian side,” Peskov told reporters when asked about the statement made by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, which states the need to guarantee further transit of Russian gas through Ukraine.

"There is no talk of stopping transit after the commissioning of the Nord Stream, this transit may be continued," he said, adding that Putin had earlier voiced this position.
