US and European lawmakers have stated “Nord stream-2”

The completion of the pipeline, in their opinion, “will jeopardize the national security of the EU and US member states and weaken the already precarious security and sovereignty of Ukraine.”

The chairmen of the foreign affairs committees of the US parliaments and a number of European countries published a joint statement on Monday, in which they opposed the agreement reached by Washington and Berlin on the “Nord stream-2.”

“We continue to oppose the “Nord stream-2” project and note with regret the recent decision of the United States and Germany on “Nord stream-2,” which entails the completion of the pipeline,” the statement said. “We consider “Nord stream-2″ to be a geopolitical project aimed at expanding Russia’s influence on Europe by dominating the energy market,” the lawmakers say.

The completion of the pipeline, in their opinion, “will endanger the national security of the EU and US member states and weaken the already precarious security and sovereignty of Ukraine.” “Moreover, the completion of the “Nord stream-2″ will give Russia another means of pressure and blackmail of Ukraine,” the authors of the statement said.

“In the changing security environment of the region, we call on NATO to strengthen deterrence, especially on the eastern flank, from the Baltic to the Black Sea,” the lawmakers point out. “We must also provide Ukraine with a roadmap for joining NATO if Ukraine implements the necessary reforms and meets the standards of membership in the alliance.” They also called for strengthening sanctions against Russia.
