Attempts to block construction of the pipeline “Nord stream-2” is an attack on European security architecture. This statement was made by Deputy Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Alexander Grushko, reports RIA Novosti.
“It is a pity, because actually attempted to attack the remaining basic elements of the European order, security and stability,” — said Grushko at the conference of the discussion club “Valdai”.
May 21, the Kremlin announced that there is confidence in completing the construction of the “Nord stream-2”, despite possible US sanctions.
Earlier it was reported that Washington intends to impose sanctions against the construction of the pipeline “Nord stream-2”. The Minister of energy of the USA Rick Perry has repeatedly said that the US is unhappy with the construction of the gas pipeline “Nord stream-2” and “Turkish stream”, which will allow Russia to refuse from Ukrainian transit.
“Nord stream-2” should connect Russia and Germany under the Baltic sea. Its launch is scheduled for the end of 2019, but may be postponed because Denmark still has not issued a permit for the construction of the pipeline, which is considered a threat to its statehood.
