“President Putin has repeatedly spoken about Russia's readiness to discuss the extension of the agreement on gas transit through Ukraine after 2024.

This is a matter of exclusively economic feasibility and profitability, ”said Peskov.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russian President Vladimir Putin previously discussed the implementation of the Nord Stream 2 project.

During the conversation, the President of Russia and the Federal Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany touched upon the possibility of extending the agreement between Gazprom and Naftogaz of Ukraine on the transportation of gas through Ukrainian territory after 2024.

Yuriy Vitrenko, head of the board of Naftogaz Ukrainy, believes that Russia will stop gas transit through Ukrainian territory after 2024.
