New South Stream pipeline will be built, co-chair of the Energy Strategy Fund Dmytro Marunych said during a roundtable of the Gorshenin Institute on topic "Will Ukraine become a nonvolatile state," ForUm correspondent reports.

According to the expert, this project will be implemented, because Russia has a clear plan on construction of bypass pipeline routes and creation of some excess capacity for transit.

The analyst specified that the launch of the South Stream with annual transfer capability of 63 billion cubic meter of gas will become a tough blow to the gas transportation system (GTS) of Ukraine and will lead to a significant reduction in transit - by 35-40 billion cubic meters.

He noted that a "zero" option for the Russian gas transportation is possible in the future, when Moscow completely refuses to transit gas through domestic GTS using bypass routes.
