Lithuanian President Gitanas Nausea at the meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel criticized the construction of the gas pipeline “Nord stream-2”. It is reported by LRT.
According to the Lithuanian leader, the Russian project is the danger that lies in the diversification of energy supplies to the EU. Nausea added that Ukraine is afraid of possible loss of Russian gas transit. “MS Merkel agreed that the Ukrainian interests should be respected,” — said the President of Lithuania.
The inauguration of Gitanas Nausea was held 12 July. On the same day, their powers laid down by the former President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite.
The project “Northern stream-2” involves the construction of a gas pipeline from Russia to Germany under the Baltic sea. It will pass through the territorial waters or in the exclusive economic zone of the countries located along the sea coast: in addition to Russia and Germany, Finland, Sweden and Denmark. The project is scheduled for completion in late 2019.
The project is the Ukraine, which fears to lose the income from the transit of Russian gas. The launch of “Nord stream-2” and the gas pipeline “Turkish stream”, whose construction is also planned for completion in 2019, can make Ukrainian gas transportation system demand. Also against the construction of “Nord stream-2” are Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and the USA, which promoted in Europe its liquefied natural gas.
