Poroshenko called “Nord stream — 2” the Trojan horse of the Kremlin
MOSCOW, 10 Aug — RIA Novosti. President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the European partners “bewitched” of Russia concerning the construction of “Nord stream — 2”.
“The”Nord stream — 2” is a “Trojan horse” of the Kremlin against European energy and, in the end, geopolitical security,” he wrote in his Facebook account.
In addition, Poroshenko says that he sees the “true motives” of Russia regarding the gas pipeline project, which, according to the Ukrainian President, will lead to “catastrophic consequences for the European partners.
Poroshenko urged the EU to get rid of the “deceptive and destructive” spells of Russia and to protect its energy interests.
The project “Northern stream — 2” involves the construction of two pipelines with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters per year off the coast of Russia through the Baltic sea to Germany. The fuel line is planned to be build next to the “Nord stream”.
The bill was opposed by some countries — primarily Ukraine, which fears has repeatedly stated that it wants to remain a transit country for Russian gas to the EU, and the US advancing plans to export its LNG to Europe.
Russia has repeatedly urged not to take the pipeline as a tool of influence. According to Vladimir Putin, Moscow refers to the project solely as an economic.
