US President Donald Trump has said that he will support stopping the construction of the “Nord stream-2” gas pipeline because of the situation with Alexey Navalny.
“Of course. I supported it. I was the first to suggest it,” the head of state told reporters, answering a question.
However, he doubted that Berlin would take such measures.
“Germany is in a weakened position. They are closing their power plants, closing nuclear power plants, coal — many power plants. They put themselves at a very disadvantage,” Trump explained.
Discussions around the future of “Nord stream-2” resumed with renewed vigor after Berlin, citing military medics, said that Navalny was poisoned with a substance from the Novichok group of chemical warfare agents.
