In the ninth month of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, the transit of Russian gas through the Ukrainian GTS was under threat.

As the former head of the GTS Operator Serhiy Makogon stated in a Bloomberg comment, the transit of Russian gas through Ukraine is under threat due to strikes on Ukraine’s energy system.

“Russia’s attack on Ukrainian gas production and electricity networks may disrupt transit. The situation is difficult, but under control,” Makogon said.

To date, transit through Ukraine remains the only possible route for Russian supplies to the countries of Western Europe after the Nord Stream accident.

The war in Ukraine and the gas situation:

On August 31, Gazprom suspended the supply of gas to Europe via Nord Stream-1.

On September 2, Gazprom announced the complete stoppage of gas pumping through the Northern Stream-1 pipeline for an indefinite period.

On September 14, 2022, the EU responded to Putin’s gas blackmail.

On September 26, information appeared about a gas leak at “North Stream”. On September 27, it became known about explosions in the area of ​​the leak.

On September 28, 2022, EU countries demanded an immediate cap on gas prices.

On October 1, it became known that Gazprom had stopped supplying gas to Italy. In addition, on October 1, 2022, Gazprom reduced gas supplies to Moldova.

On October 4, 2022, Turkey decided to make a serious gas offer to Gazprom.

On November 8, 2022, Turkey began paying for Russian gas in rubles.

A blow to the energy system of Ukraine:

On October 10, 2022, the Russian Federation launched attacks on critical infrastructure facilities in Ukraine. In just one day, 30% of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure was damaged.

Since October 10, attacks on critical infrastructure facilities have not stopped.

The occupiers are hitting power stations, hydropower and heat generation facilities. An emergency power outage began across the country.

On November 15, Russia fired 100 missiles into the territory of Ukraine. It was the most massive shelling of Ukraine’s energy system since the beginning of the war.

On November 17, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky announced that 10 million Ukrainians were left without electricity. On the same day, an anti-record for power outages was set in Kyiv.

On November 18, 2022, the KMDA advised Kyiv residents to stock up on water and food. DTEK urged Ukrainians to think about leaving the country for the winter in order to save energy.

On November 19, the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, said that the occupiers had destroyed about 50% of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.

On November 23, Russia again struck the energy system of Ukraine. The Zaporizhzhia NPP went into full blackout mode. The Ministry of Energy of Ukraine announced that a blackout had begun in the entire energy system of the country.
