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.
