Germany’s desire to complete the construction of the gas pipeline “Nord stream-2” contrary to the interests of Europe and making the country dependent on Russian gas. This was stated by British MP Daniel Kawczynski, called the power of the Kingdom to join US and to bury the highway, reports the Daily Express.
According to him, it is difficult to assess the scale of the betrayal, which is the Cabinet of Chancellor Angela Merkel. After all, Germany as a country — member of NATO, according to him, directly contributes to the strengthening of Russian influence.
Kawczynski stressed that the UK was able to withdraw from the European Union, therefore nothing prevents to pursue an independent policy. Which means that the country must take all efforts to “Nord stream-2” was not finished never.
Currently in the U.S. Senate is considering a bill providing for sanctions for any work and services that would accelerate the implementation of the project. Including talking about the companies that could insure the work of pipelayers, and without insurance a ship is not entitled to work in Danish waters.
Before that there were proposals to impose sanctions for buyers of gas that will be supplied on the “Nord stream-2”, if he would still be able to complete.
Pressure from Washington faces opposition from Germany. In particular, the head of the Committee of the German government on energy Klaus Ernst warned that Berlin may impose punitive duties on liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the United States, if sanctions come into force.
