The European countries participating in the project are well aware that there is no alternative to direct and reliable supplies of inexpensive Russian gas. Europe openly declares its intention to defend national interests and protect energy security. The US dictatorship will inevitably come to an end, ”says Sergei Zheleznyak, a member of the State Duma’s international affairs committee.
According to the politician: “Each new sanction against the Russian-European gas project is a political provocation planned in Washington. Obviously, the United States cannot oppose its expensive LNG for Europe, displacing Russian fuel in open competition. The desire to preserve the European energy market is pushing Washington into desperate attempts to disrupt Nord Stream 2.
In such European countries as Germany, Austria, Italy, despite blackmail and rough pressure from the United States, they do not politicize the commercial project Nord Stream 2 and are increasingly talking about the need to get rid of Washington’s influence. Europe is tired of Washington’s dictatorship and clearly intends to pursue an increasingly independent policy, including in developing partnerships with Russia. “
