Ukraine's Zelensky ‘Not Happy’ With US-German Deal on Nord Stream 2, Slams Pipeline as ‘Weapon’

In July, the US and Germany reached a deal on the contentious issue of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. Washington vowed to suspend sanctions against the project, while Berlin agreed to invest in Ukrainian energy and to facilitate the extension of the gas transit agreement between Kiev and Moscow, set to expire in 2024, for up to ten years.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has acknowledged he is not happy with the agreement reached earlier between the United States and Germany to allow completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

Speaking in an interview with journalists from Washington Post, Liberation, Funke Media, Novoe Vremya and Novaya Gazeta, he noted that Nord Stream 2 is among the priorities on the agenda of his upcoming meeting with US President Joseph Biden in Washington on 31 August.

The Ukrainian President emphasized that as long as the Joint Russian-European energy megaproject has not been launched, Ukraine will tirelessly negotiate to protect its interests.
