Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has revealed the US “gas plan” against Russia. It is directly related to Europe.
At a meeting with representatives of the Association of European Businesses in Russia, Sergey Lavrov spoke about the actions of the United States. In his opinion, Washington intends to spoil relations between Russia and Europe in the energy sector.
“The United States does not hide this: they openly say that cooperation with Russia is contrary to the interests of Europe’s energy security. They want to directly embroil us in this area,” the Foreign Minister said.
He added that the United States is doing everything to “reduce the relationship” between Europe and Russia.
According to the senior Republican of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the US House of Representatives, Michael McCall, the US administration should punish Russia, namely, to impose sanctions against Nord Stream 2. The politician is sure: Moscow is deliberately manipulating the European gas market, taking advantage of the serious energy crisis to speed up the certification of the pipeline.
Recall that Russian President Vladimir Putin supported the initiative of Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak to increase the volume of gas sales on the electronic trading exchange of St. Petersburg. However, the head of state emphasized that this should be done through the exchange, and not through the spot market. Moreover, these actions should not negatively affect the interests of Russia.
