Lavrov responded to trump’s words on the dependence of Germany on Russia
The Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov in interview to TV channel RT has called “ideology” statements of the President of the United States Donald trump and Minister of energy of the country Rick Perry about the dependence of Germany on Russia.
“And when the Minister of energy of the USA Rick Perry said that the project “Northern stream — 2″ must be stopped and that the United States may impose sanctions against European countries whose companies are involved in this project, under the pretext that the United States ostensibly in favor of competition and authoritarian Russian gas worse than the us democratic gas, I’m very sorry, but this is no longer the economy and competition, and pure ideology,” Lavrov said.
Trump informed at the meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stated that Russia is fully in control of Germany through the supply of gas. German Chancellor Angela Merekl in response, said that the country is pursuing an independent policy.
