Nord Stream Launch to Have Minimal Effect on Transit Through Ukraine - Minister

September 8, 2011
The launch of the new Nord Stream pipeline linking Russia directly to Germany will only have a small effect on the transit of gas through the Ukrainian gas transport system, Ukrainian Energy Ministry Yuriy Boyko said.

"In light of the increasing consumption in Europe, we have calculated that if the volume being pumped [through] UKraine does decline, it wil not be by much", he said according to RIA-Novosti.
