There is no simple answer to this question for one simple reason. If there is no Nord Stream 2 and TurkStream 2, Gazprom will lack a small portion of opportunities [due to no transit through the gas transportation system of Ukraine], which will not allow it to fully fulfill its obligations. If there is TurkStream 2, but there is no Nord Stream 2, Gazprom can manage without Ukraine, but remaining at the minimum level [of gas supply volumes].

This is a very popular story. It is used for political purposes. And this pressure that the government also feels, led to the fact that it attempted to intervene not in its powers, because according to the law on joint stock companies, approval of my salary and the conditions of my contract is the exclusive powers of the supervisory board [of Naftogaz Ukrainy]. To remove these prospects from the political arena, I made a decision from February of this year until the end of this calendar year, that is, until the end of the political process, I will transfer all my income to charitable needs," External link
