Germany has urged Ukraine not to criticize the “Nord stream-2”
Kiev should stop criticizing Berlin for his participation in the project “Northern stream-2”. This was stated by the President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
“You don’t have to accuse us, he said at a press briefing in Kyiv. Even if we are talking about the “Nord stream-2″, we speak also about the future and security of Ukraine”.
According to Steinmeier, Berlin is working to ensure the transit of gas through Ukrainian territory. “For this the negotiations with the European Union, I hope they will bring results”, — said the President of Germany.
“Nord stream-2” involves the construction of two pipelines from Russia through the Baltic sea to Germany. The Kremlin has repeatedly called on not to politicize this issue. According to the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, Moscow refers to the “Nord stream-2” only as an economic project.
