Natural gas prices in Europe are on the rise after the Ukrainian Natural Gas Transport Company announced that, as of yesterday, the transport of Russian gas to Europe on one of the routes through Ukrainian territory will stop.
According to expert estimates, natural gas supplies from Russia to Europe through Ukraine will decline by about a third as a result of this decision by the Ukrainian authorities, noting that Gazprom continued to pump gas through Ukrainian territory normally even after the launch of the special military operation.
