Parliament should determine conditions for selecting operator for Ukraine's GTS - Kobolev

The Ukrainian parliament should join the formation of criteria for selecting a foreign partner that will manage the Ukrainian gas transit system (GTS).

Naftogaz CEO Andriy Kobolev said this at a roundtable meeting "Cooperation in the Parliament-Government-Naftogaz Triangle," on Friday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Regarding the preservation of transit through Ukraine, the only way, I think everybody already understands, is the involvement of a foreign partner in the management of the Ukrainian GTS. Unfortunately, the approval of the Nord Stream 2 is moving at a high speed. Turks agreed to build two lines of the Turkish Stream. There's very little time left," Kobolev said.

He stressed that since the final approval of a company that will manage the Ukrainian GTS as part of a consortium will be adopted by parliament, then at this stage it must be involved in determining the criteria for the selection of such a company.
