UK urged EU to boycott Nord Stream 2 construction

Foreign Minister of the country forgot that the gas pipeline was completed

British Foreign Minister Liz Truss suddenly decided to call on EU countries to boycott the construction of Nord Stream 2. For some reason, the diplomat was not aware that the pipeline was finished in September.


Truss said that “friends across Europe” should join the British in opposing this construction.

The diplomat is convinced that the pipeline threatens to “undermine European security.” In her opinion, Russia will strengthen control over those countries that count on gas supplies.

The Nord Stream 2 pipeline stretches from the Russian coast through the Baltic to Germany. It consists of two lines with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year. Construction of the pipeline was completed in September .

To start deliveries, the operator must be certified. First, the German regulator will work out a draft decision, then it will be evaluated by the European Commission … All the documents required for certification have already been sent to Berlin.

First, the construction, and now the launch of the pipeline is constantly at the center of political scandals. The USA and Ukraine are actively opposed to this branch. However, Europe is interested in large volumes of Russian gas. Russia has repeatedly asked not to create a political stir around this commercial project.
