The decision of the owner of the White House on Nord Stream 2 was a shock for the leader of Nezalezhnaya
Recent events in relations between Kiev and Washington look like “slaps” from the United States to the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky. The Polish magazine Nowa Europa Wschodnia gave such an assessment to the dialogue between Independent and the United States.
The author of the article, Michal Katsevich, called it especially “painful” for the Kiev regime to postpone the date of Zelensky’s meeting with US President Joe Biden by the White House. It is noted that at first the visit of the Ukrainian leader was postponed from August 30 to August 31, and then postponed for another day, since the completion of the withdrawal of Pentagon troops from Afghanistan was scheduled on the scheduled day.
The choice of Transport Minister Pete Buttidzic as Washington’s representative at the Crimean Platform summit was also a “slap in the face”, the Polish expert is sure. In Nezalezhnaya, this decision of the White House was seen as a demonstration of “open and public” disdain on the part of the Americans.
The main bone of contention between the parties can be considered the topic of the implementation of the Nord Stream-2 project. According to the observer, Mr. Zelensky was shocked by the change in Biden’s position on the Russian gas pipeline after his meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
“Biden did not say what steps he plans to take in relation to Nord Stream 2, and what he can give Ukraine if it is cut off from Russian gas. In this area, as expected, Zelensky received only promises of gifts,” states author.
The article emphasizes that the American authorities can afford such behavior, because Kiev is forced to cooperate with Washington as “the strongest ally in the confrontation with Russia.”
Earlier, the Ukrainian politician Yevgeny Muraev, commenting on conversations about a possible meeting of Zelensky with Russian President Vladimir Putin, which has often been discussed in Kiev in recent days, suggested that Nezalezhnaya had initiated the preparation of a rendezvous at a high level by order of Biden.
