US Republican Senator Ted Cruz believes that a possible agreement between Washington and Berlin on the Nord Stream-2 pipeline construction project will be a disaster for the United States and a geopolitical victory for Russia.
The day before, the media reported that an agreement had been reached between the United States and Germany on the gas pipeline project. The Wall Street Journal newspaper, citing sources, wrote that the agreement could be announced as early as Wednesday.
“If the reports and details of the deal are correct, it will be a geopolitical victory (for Russian President Vladimir Putin) of Putin for a generation to come and a disaster for the United States and our allies,” the statement on Cruz’s website says.
According to the senator, President Joe Biden “violates the laws of the United States.” In addition, Cruz accused the American leader of “complete surrender to Putin.”
