Gas Supplies via «Nord Stream-2» May Begin on October 1

The authors of the publication refer to the Gas Directive of the European Union, which covers the Russian pipeline. The article also notes that Ukraine should develop a system of «hubs» based on underground gas storage facilities.
Statements about the control over the «Nord Stream-2» have been repeatedly voiced by the leaders of the country's oil industry. The «Nord Stream-2» will be stretched from Russia to Germany along the bottom of the Baltic Sea. The capacity of it's two lines is 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year.
