Kremlin Accuses Trump of Trying to Bully Europe into Buying US LNG

As previously reported, trump has sharply criticized the system of construction of the gas pipeline "Nord stream-2" and called Germany dependent on Russian Federation.

President Trump stated that Russian Federation completely controls the FRG through the expansion of energy supplies through the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline. That said, the works have been scheduled in close co-ordination with Nord Stream AG's upstream and downstream partners so that gas supply to European customers during that period is ensured via the alternative transportation route. I think that in this context this is the most urgent: we need to ensure that transit through Ukraine continues, vice-president of the EC said.

Russian Federation is keen to press ahead with the Nord Stream 2 pipeline since it has the potential to double its gas exports under the Baltic Sea to Germany, bypassing traditional routes through Ukraine with which it has poor relations.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Trump's statement marked an escalation of a USA campaign to talk down Russian gas supplies to Europe in an attempt to push the US energy sector instead.

To justify the project, the Nord Stream II company predicts the European Union will need to an extra 120 billion cubic metres of gas over the next 20 years.

At one point, the former Norwegian prime minister pointed out that the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies in Europe disagreed among themselves on ways to reduce the continent's reliance on Russian gas.

"We're also going to discuss one other specific issue of deep concern to me and to everybody here, and I think that's the Nord Stream 2 pipeline", Kerry said then. There are always other options, the USA secretary said, noting that the parties had held frank discussions on Nord Stream 2. She said that she has explored the issues with Ukraine which confronts the pipeline due to the influence it would provide Russian Federation over European countries.

But he said the priority for now was to secure gas from the Caspian Sea region, while maintaining supplies of Russian gas through Ukrainian pipelines beyond 2019.
