The deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Oleksandr Dubinsky on the air of the Nash TV channel revealed the main deception of Ukraine in the Nord Stream-2 issue. It is reported by RIA News…
According to him, the country’s authorities are misleading citizens with their statements that the Russian gas pipeline can be blocked. “Today I have already read the statement [главы компании «Нафтогаз Украины» Юрия] Vitrenko that the line can be stopped even after it is put into operation. I do not yet know of a single case of stopping after the commissioning of any “streams” that have already been built, ”he said.
The deputy noted that Ukraine cannot influence commercial projects that are outside its territory. He added that the authorities are only able to release news for the domestic consumer, in which they “fight the Russians.”
Dubinsky added that Ukrainian officials constantly insist that the country does not purchase Russian gas. He added that in fact Kiev buys it and formalizes it as Hungarian, so that later it can talk about “avoiding gas dependence on Moscow” and steal money.
Earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy told German Chancellor Angela Merkel about the need to discuss the construction of Nord Stream 2 in the Normandy format. According to the head of the Ukrainian state, the launch of the pipeline poses a threat to the country’s energy security, therefore, a dialogue and guarantees from the countries of the European Union (EU), Germany and France are required.
