The Ukrainian leader said that the construction of the SP-2 will ruin the transit of gas through the country.The media reports that the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky said that the construction of the Russian gas pipeline “Nord Stream-2” it is capable of ruining the transit of gas through the territory of Ukraine.
According to Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the Ukrainian leader said that as soon as the technical side of the process is completed, Ukraine should not wait for a contract with the Russian Federation.
He suggested that the SP-2 will be completed this year, and will start working within the next two to three years.
He expressed confidence that such a development of the process is necessary for Russia, so that Kiev loses the next contract.
Zelensky added that the Russian authorities are simply using the project to achieve benefits on the issues of Donbass and Crimea.
Zelensky called the gas pipeline a trump bet, using card terminology for comparison.
“They have a royal flush, which is also partially supported by Europe & #8221;,-the president concluded.
Recall that the Russian authorities have repeatedly made a call not to transfer the construction to the field of politics, stating that the appearance of the object is beneficial to both Russia and the EU countries.
On the side of the Russian Federation, Germany most often acted, which ignored the sanctions imposed by US President Donald Trump.
In response, the Kremlin stressed that it pursues exclusively economic goals, and gas transit through Ukraine will remain unchanged, in accordance with the agreements concluded earlier.
