Russia faces serious consequences if it uses gas as a weapon, said US diplomat Kurt Volcker.
“We must speak from the point of view of gas, that is, from the point of view of security, since Russia is trying to influence Europe and this threatens Ukraine,” the publication Glavred Ukraine quotes Volker.
Volcker said the US and Germany will take action against Nord Stream 2 if Russia uses it as a weapon. The diplomat noted that the United States is trying to resist the implementation of the project, but so far this struggle is limited to words. And the agreement between Washington and Berlin, allowing the completion of the gas pipeline without additional sanctions, is explained by financial benefits.
Gas pipeline construction Nord Stream 2 completed… The volume of supplies in 2021 may amount to 5.6 billion cubic meters, in the future – annually up to 55 billion cubic meters.
Gazprom completed the project on its own, as Swiss contractors halted work due to US sanctions.
