Commercial Director of Ukrainian of “Naftogaz” Yuriy Vitrenko revealed ways to stop the Russian gas project “North stream-2”. The vision he outlined in an interview with the media company Deutsche Welle.
Vitrenko believes that to stop construction can us sanctions, a dramatic change of attitude to the project from Germany, as well as the position of Denmark, which remains the only European country not given permission to work in their territorial waters.
“American sanctions are an important factor. An important factor is the position of the German side, the last time evolyutsioniruet. And we think that the German politicians can reach an understanding that this project really dangerous for Germany and for Europe as a whole”, — said the commercial Director of “Naftogaz”.
Berlin may change its position due to the fact that the project will hit the Ukrainian transit, says Vitrenko. In an argument, he quoted the words of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who noted that the project can be implemented only in case of preservation of the Ukrainian transit gas. Denmark alone will be able to slow down the implementation of the whole project, if you do not give permission for construction.
“The”Nord stream-2″ is a political project aimed at the corruption of European politicians aimed at dividing the unity of Europe, to the destruction of the European project. The same understanding we see from the American side, the only question is when it will be implemented in concrete actions,” — said Vitrenko, noting that in the United States are already preparing sanctions for the implementation of the project.
The US President Donald trump has repeatedly criticized the Russian draft. The head of state is convinced that this project is political and is responsible for Europe only additional risks in parallel against this background, the trump offers Europe to reduce dependence on Russian gas and switch to gas from the US, what Europe is supposedly already considering the possibility of construction of terminals for receiving U.S. liquefied natural gas.
