“The hopelessness of the gas conflict with Russia in the parliament was understood under Poroshenko, and it is understood under Zelensky. But if, under the previous president, victorious reports like “we will defeat Russia” were in fashion, then today's parliament can afford to officially doubt any victorious achievements, ”Balbek believes.

The deputy also noted that Ukraine understands that the declaration of a gas war in Russia means a cold winter, huge financial losses and the fury of a frozen population.

Earlier, Voloshin expressed the opinion that Ukraine should not bring the situation with gas transit from Russia to a gas war, since Kiev will be defeated in this case.
