Ukrtransgaz said a repair of both two lines of the Nord Stream pipeline between Russia and Germany was the reason for the jump in transit.

Both lines are shut for planned maintenance July 16-30.

Russian gas volumes piped via Ukraine to European consumers in the first five months of 2019 rose to 37.6 billion cubic metres, up 8 percent from a year earlier.
