And about. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that the question for the FRG on the issue of Nord Stream 2 is not only about energy security, but also about the preservation of Ukrainian transit, RIA Novosti reports.
According to Merkel, Berlin will continue to speak from these positions. The politician noted that JV – 2 is a completely contradictory thing discussed by Germany and Poland. She also noted that a joint document has been developed with the United States, since it is not only about energy security, but also about Ukraine as a transit country.
Earlier, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said that the new US sanctions against Nord Stream 2 are illegitimate and hit the interests of Washington’s allies, the European Union and Germany. Recall that the US sanctions against the company Transadria and the Russian-flagged vessel Marlin, associated with SP-2, entered into force on November 23. Commenting on this, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the West, led by the United States, is applying sanctions with and without reason.
