“Poland and Ukraine have warned well in advance of the dangers of building Nord Stream 2. Our calls for vigilance and courage have been heard in the US Congress, which is pushing for steps to stop this dangerous, controversial project,” he recalls. ministers.
“We call on US President Joe Biden to use all the means at his disposal to prevent the project from being completed,” the publication said.
“It is necessary to reject claims that” Nord Stream 2 has become “too big to fail” and that it simply needs to be completed. If the project is successful, Russia can try to convince the Ukrainian public that the West does not care about its own principles and, ultimately, about Ukraine ‘s security and prosperity, “the ministers explained.
Biden’s Nord Stream 2 is considered a “bad deal” for the European Union (EU), White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told a news briefing on Tuesday, noting that Washington’s negative attitude towards the pipeline has not changed.
Washington is closely monitoring the construction of the pipeline, as well as evaluating the effectiveness of possible sanctions, she added.
Psaki stressed that the decision on the next steps will be taken “in coordination with [ASV] allies and partners “.
The US and Germany are discussing the possible fate of Nord Stream 2, the Wall Street Journal reported last week.
The official position of the German government has remained unchanged – it supports this project.
Earlier, several media outlets, citing their sources, reported that a moratorium on the completion of the pipeline could be discussed in exchange for the US waiving sanctions.
As a result of the negotiations, demands could be made on Russia – it provides guarantees that the possible opening of the gas pipeline will not lead to the suspension of gas transit through Ukraine.
