The European Commission (EC) is in constant contact with the Ukrainian authorities on issues related to energy. It is ready to discuss the “Nord stream-2” gas pipeline, a representative of the EC press service told.
In July, Ukraine announced that, in accordance with article 274 of the Association Agreement, it had requested consultations with the European Commission on the “Nord stream-2,” which allegedly threatens the country’s security and violates the principles of diversification of the EU Energy Union. The European Commission announced that it had received this request.
“We are in constant contact with the Ukrainian authorities on many topics, including energy issues. We are looking forward to discussing with our Ukrainian colleagues how best to move forward with their request for consultations,” the agency’s interlocutor answered the question of whether these consultations have begun.
The EU attaches great importance to Ukraine’s energy security, he also noted. “We remain fully available to discuss any issues of concern to Ukraine,” the EC representative concluded.
