Putin: Those who do not allow the Nord Stream-2 pipeline to operate are acting stupidly


THE Russian President Vladimir Putin considers those who do not allow the pipeline to operate Nord Stream-2 act stupidly.

“Regarding Nord Stream-2, yes, I agree with your estimates and this is nonsense for those who do not have the ability to operate in this system, because the additional volumes of natural gas volumes in the European market would undoubtedly reduce the “The price of gas in the stock market, in the spot markets,” said the Russian president at a joint meeting of the State Council and the Council on Science and Education, commenting on the speech of the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia Vladimir Zhirinovsky. Europe “they do not open Nord Stream 2 themselves and now they will start to freeze”. “On their own, they are worsening their position,” Zirinovsky said.

Earlier, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said, according to Interfax, that the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project connecting Russia to Europe had become a bargaining chip in a game played by the United States and the European Union.

The pipeline is awaiting the approval of the German regulator, at a time when Russia and the West are embroiled in a political and security dispute over Ukraine’s ambitions to join NATO.
