“For & nbsp; security in Europe, transatlantic cooperation is indispensable. In the & nbsp; situation with & nbsp; Ukraine, we & nbsp; face a new challenge. The inviolability of borders is a great value and & nbsp; is not & nbsp; negotiable & nbsp; & nbsp; & mdash; said Mr. Scholz.
In his address, he also & nbsp; touched upon the topic of the coronavirus pandemic, internal power in & nbsp; Germany, and & nbsp; also the programs of his government.
Earlier, Mr. Scholz said that & nbsp; Germany continues to remain committed to ensuring that Ukraine transports Russian natural gas and & nbsp; in the & nbsp; future. He also reported on the & nbsp; course of negotiations, the purpose of which should be Ukraine's entry into the & nbsp; renewable energy market.
Note that in the summer the USA and & nbsp; Germany entered into a deal on & nbsp; & nbsp; & quot; Nord Stream-2 & raquo ;. Washington pledged not & nbsp; to impose sanctions against the pipeline operator, Berlin & nbsp; & mdash; promote the extension of the transit agreement with & nbsp; Ukraine. The first string of the Russian gas pipeline Nord Stream 2 is under working pressure, and & nbsp; the second line will be under it until & nbsp; the end of 2021. Germany has suspended certification of Nord Stream 2 AG. The decision on & nbsp; this issue will not be made & nbsp; earlier than the second half of 2022. At the same time, Moscow fears a military solution to the 'Donbass problem' from & nbsp; Ukraine, and & nbsp; in & nbsp; Kiev they talk about & nbsp; the threat of a 'military invasion of Russia'.
