The construction of the pipeline Nord stream-2.
WASHINGTON, 5 Dec – a Senior official of the US state Department said that the incident with the detention of military ships of Ukraine in the Kerch Strait at the border violation of the Russian Federation should force the EU to abandon the “Nord stream-2”. Earlier, the German foreign Minister has stated that the incident in the Black sea did not change the relationship of Berlin to the construction of this pipeline.
“The incident in Kerch should be a reminder to all European allies that “Nord stream-2” is a bad idea. And this incident provides more clarity in this. I would say that the incident in Kerch — the reminder that the more gas you have the infrastructure to bypass Ukraine thanks to the “Nord stream-2″, the weaker the deterrent and deter Russian military aggression”, — he said.
