Pushkov called Germany’s convenient position on Nord Stream 2
At the same time, Pushkov draws attention to the open question of what actions can be regarded as the use of Nord Stream 2 as a political weapon. For example, will Germany consider the suspension of transit as such a weapon if Kiev sets conditions unfavorable for Moscow for a new contract or any gas conflict between Russia and Ukraine? and gives her the opportunity for different interpretations. At the same time, it is obvious that the German economy desperately needs uninterrupted gas supplies from Nord Stream 2, otherwise Berlin would not insist so strongly on the completion and launch of the project.
Earlier it was reported that the seagoing pipe-laying vessel “Fortuna”, involved in the implementation of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, will operate in the waters of the Federal Republic of Germany on a 13-14-kilometer section in the coming days. At the same time, pipe-laying within the framework of the ongoing project will be completed by September 12 this year, RIA Novosti reports with reference to a notice to mariners published by the German authorities.
