The USA demanded from the Russian Federation to provide Europe with gas through Ukraine

The US believes that Russia should increase gas supplies to Europe through Ukraine. This was stated by the representative of the US State Department Amos Hochstein in an interview with Bloomberg, commenting on Gazprom’s refusal to book additional volumes of gas transit through the Ukrainian territory in October.

Hochstein stressed that the capacity of the gas pipelines running through Ukraine will be enough to supply Europe with gas, and Russia has “repeatedly declared” sufficient gas reserves for this. “Therefore, if this is true, she should do it as quickly as possible,” Hochstein emphasized. At the same time, he suggested that in this way Moscow seeks to speed up the launch of Nord Stream-2.

We will remind, earlier the official predicted that in winter Europe could freeze due to lack of gas for heating.

As reported, on September 15, the price of gas in Europe exceeded historical highs, rising to $ 970. Kiev explained this by the “blackmail” of the Russian Federation directed against the European Union in order to launch the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline as soon as possible.
