Media: trump urged Merkel to abandon the “Nord stream-2”

Трамп готов объявить Германии торговую войну из-за Северного потока- 2

A consortium of western companies and Russia's Gazprom that is due to build the controversial subsea Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany said on Tuesday it was starting preparatory work in the Greifswald bay off Germany's Baltic coast.

The cause of action in the United States, according to the Minister, lies in the desire of Americans to increase their own exports of shale gas.

"The US is looking for sales markets". However, she added that Washington was focused on using diplomatic means to halt Nord Stream 2, one of several Russian projects to export gas to western Europe via routes avoiding Ukraine, with which Moscow is involved in a series of disputes.

"But if it's America first, and they put their economic interest before others, then they have to expect Europe to define their own interests and fight for them".

Altmaier has said he is optimistic that a "substantial" amount of gas will continue to flow through Ukraine when the Baltic pipeline starts operating.




"Germany is not doing anything against the interests of Ukraine".

Note that the U.S. and the countries of Eastern Europe are opposed to the construction of the Nord stream - 2, and believe that its implementation will lead to an actual degradation of the Ukrainian gas transportation system and the strengthening of the Russian Federation in the gas market of the EU.

Mr Johnson responded: "I can assure him that we in the UK Government are well aware of the deep controversy surrounding Nord Stream 2 and we raise it not just in Ukraine but of course with our European friends and partners".

The US opposes the project because it will increase Europe's reliance on Russian Federation for gas supplies. The only shareholder of the latter is Gazprom.

In addition, USA intelligence is concerned about the construction of the pipeline "Nord stream-2" from the Russian Federation to Germany, as it would allow Russian security services to accommodate the new technologies of listening and monitoring in the Baltic sea. It has an annual capacity of 55 billion cubic metres (1.9 trillion cubic feet), but its capacity is planned to be doubled to 110 billion cubic metres (3.9 trillion cubic feet) by 2019, by laying two additional lines.
