The head of Naftogaz called the Russian president guilty of Ukraine's failure to stock up on cheap gas on time

62

The Ukrainian "Naftogaz" confirmed the existence of serious problems with gas reserves in the country. At the same time, the management of Naftogaz has to answer uncomfortable questions about what prevented the company from filling underground gas storage facilities with sufficient volumes of gas, when the price of this type of fuel was low - around $ 200 per thousand cubic meters.


The chairman of the board of Naftogaz, Yuri Vitrenko, answering this question, immediately found the main culprit. And it turned out to be ... Russian President Vladimir Putin. According to Mr. Vitrenko, it is the Russian president who is to blame for the fact that Naftogaz did not purchase sufficient volumes of gas in the spring of 2021 for Ukraine.

Vitrenko:

The price was good. But Putin began to cut gas supplies to the European market, and it began to grow. We started downloading less. If we could import at a good price, we would become billionaires. But gas prices are driven by Putin's unpredictable policies. And no one knew when he would reduce gas supplies to Europe.

At the same time, the head of Naftogaz did not specify when it was such that “Putin began to cut gas supplies to the European market”? And there can be no concretization, because this statement by Mr. Vitrenko is intended for an audience that is not used to following the facts. And these facts stubbornly testify that Russia in the current year in certain periods supplied record volumes of "blue fuel" to European buyers. After all, if Vitrenko had said this, then how then could the Russian president be called the culprit of the situation with the underground storage facilities in Ukraine ...

However, Vitrenko urged not to dramatize the situation. According to him, "the amount of gas in the storage facilities of Ukraine is now about the same as during the management of its predecessors." In particular, he cited as an example the period when V. Groisman was in the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.

Vitrenko:

I think the winter should be calm.

Today Ukraine buys gas at a price of approximately UAH 20 per 1 cubic meters. This is about 55 rubles per cubic meter. For many consumers, these prices are simply unaffordable.

In Ukraine itself, Vitrenko has already been criticized for accusing Putin of not purchasing and stocking up on cheap gas on time. It was noted that the Russian president is becoming "an ideal figure for officials to shift the blame for their mistakes and failures in work."

      Night. Grandfather and grandmother are in bed.
      The grandfather is failing.
      Grandfather, grumbling, turns away with the words:
      -Bastard Putin!
      Grandma:
      -God, Putin, what has to do with it?
      Grandfather:
      -Well, I don’t know, this was not the case under Brezhnev!

              In general, such inventors live in Ukraine that one involuntarily recalled the anecdotal return of Nadezhda Savchenko, convicted in the Russian Federation, from Russia to Ukraine! Namely.

              It is known that Putin signed a decree pardoning Nadezhda Savchenko, who was convicted in Russia in the case of the murder of VGTRK journalists in Donbass. With a request for her pardon, the relatives of the dead Russians turned to Putin.

              When the Ukrainian gunner Nadezhda Savchenko, released in exchange for the Russians Alexander Alexandrov and Yevgeny Erofeyev, returned to Ukraine
              from the Russian prison and landed at the Ukrainian airport, then the Ukrainian journalists and patriots who met her were very surprised by her well-fed - "from a hunger strike in Russian dungeons" - appearance!

              At the same time, a rumor immediately spread on social networks in Ukraine that the heroic Nadezhda Savchenko, "unhappy in Russian torture chambers," simply returned from Russia to her homeland at the 3rd - 4th month of pregnancy - and only from Putin himself! fool

        Well, at least this is not Putin's fault?
        They don't buy weapons from him, so they can't hang dogs on him like for gas. Although it was not Putin who stopped supplying LNG to Europe, which is why the price of gas increased.

      Unfortunately, he is not as smart as we think. The thoughts that he expounds are not the fruit of a long research of his brain. It is just a tool to cover up the failures of the group policy it represents. The most important thing is that the "people eat". And he "hawala" this and does not show any claims to Vitrenko. One has only to look at the reflection of the political predilections of the Ukrainian electorate and it becomes clear that he is not ready to consume anything like that. 7 years have passed since the coup, the economy has fallen below the coal mine, and people in Ukraine, almost 83%, express their approval of the political direction proclaimed on the Maidan !!! And this is today, when it got colder and the first rolling blackouts began !!! I have such an assumption that winter will not help here .... The thinking activity of the Ukrainian plebs freezes along with the batteries in their apartments. Have you heard many denials of the guilt of Russia and Putin personally in the situation in Ukraine? I am not very ... Today, the average Ukrainian is fully aware of himself as an enemy of Russia and blames Russia and Putin for his problems mainly .... They have long been not like brothers to us, but in the foreseeable future they are not even "fellow travelers". And only the rules of politeness do not allow top-level leaders to say it out loud, and they all repeat this hackneyed phrase that "Hitlers come and go, but the people remain." The people stayed in Germany ... And what, does he somehow have a better attitude towards Russians than in 1941? Hardly ... It's the same in Ukraine.

    Nothing terrible, 55 rubles per cubic meter, this is a penny for Ukraine, tse Europe. For 7 years, probably salaries like in Poland. And 55 rubles is the price of gas for industry, for the population several times less. They did not put on a pitchfork, the southwestern regions will survive the winter in warmth.

      and for budgetary organizations it is 2 times more than for the population ... the question is that
      For 9 months of 2021, NJSC "Naftogaz of Ukraine" lost 4,37 billion UAH of loss (4 times less than in 2020, then the loss amounted to 17,03 billion UAH)
      "Operator of the gas transmission system of Ukraine" (OGTS of Ukraine) net profit of 5,8 billion ($ 220 million) (3,6 times less than in 2020, then 20,9 billion hryvnia ($ 793 million).
      In total (before the division it was a single company), the profit was 1,4 billion (last year almost 4 billion), and if it’s somehow in $ ... but money is needed, but here ...
      The legalization of the gambling industry in Ukraine did not bring the expected revenues to the country's budget. From the sale of casino licenses, the treasury received UAH 1,34 billion, instead of the planned income of UAH 7,4 billion.

    I don't really understand the term itself - I started to cut supplies. What is it like? The sale, as elsewhere, takes place according to a simple principle - you come to the seller, agree on the price and volumes, and you receive the goods. If you do not come to the seller - what and where should he supply? There is no contract! Nobody asked to sell a hundred something. And nowhere is it written that we are just like that, on the ball, with incomprehensible prospects, are obliged to put some volumes of gas on European exchanges. Buy - do not buy, it doesn’t matter. Thus knocking down prices for poor Euroheans. Is it for us - on feijoa ?? And why, then, are not similar claims made by the United States and Qatar? This makes no sense..

            And you just imagine that the site's rating, like the popularity of the publication, depends on the circulation. Higher circulation means more money. The same is in electronic editions. It all comes down to money. I have no doubt that Vetrenko is quite an intelligent person. But his performances are designed for his audience. His audience is pathologically stupid and underdeveloped. But this is HIS audience. She said on the Maidan, zigoval, and so on .... And this "audience" in Ukraine-85 percent. (Look at the results of the elections to the Verkhovna Row. Less than 15 percent of the citizens of Ukraine voted for the opposition bloc) This is the objective result of the mental development of the citizens of the Square.

    The head of Naftogaz called the Russian president guilty of Ukraine's failure to stock up on cheap gas on time

    This is called outwitting oneself, which has already happened to Ukraine more than once.

    Today Ukraine buys gas at a price of about UAH 20 per 1 cubic meters. This is about 55 rubles per cubic meter.

    Author! Then turn down the catfish. The average cost of 1 m3 of gas for the population of Ukrus is 8 UAH * 2,72 at the rate of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation = 21,76 rubles / 1 m3 ...
