Former US President Donald Trump, during a speech in Arizona, criticized his successor Joe Biden for approving the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. His words lead RIA News…
The ex-head of the White House stressed that he “stopped” construction, and the current leader approved it “within a couple of weeks.” According to him, after the completion of the work, after a couple of months, “it will be billions and billions of dollars.”
“He approved the largest pipeline in the world, which runs from Russia to Germany, and we have to defend Germany. I get along with [президентом России Владимиром] Putin, because it’s good, I get along with him, he gets along with me, but no one was tougher with Russia than me, ”Trump said.
According to him, he told German Chancellor Angela Merkel that Nord Stream 2 would be over, and asked her why the United States spends billions of dollars on “protection from Russia,” while the FRG purchases from her energy.
On July 21, the details of the agreement between the United States and Germany on Nord Stream 2 became known. According to them, the American side will not interfere with the completion of the construction of the gas pipeline in the territorial waters of Germany, and the FRG will undertake the obligation to extend the current contract for the transit of Russian gas through the territory of Ukraine. In the event that Moscow refuses to sign an appropriate agreement with Kiev or uses the object for political pressure, sanctions will be imposed against it.
