The diplomat also admitted that "Nord Stream-2" is "one of the greatest" tests for strategic partnership of Ukraine and Germany. "Here we with Germany have disagreements. It is the fact" — Melnik has told. "Nord Stream-2" — the gas pipeline from Russia to Germany through the Baltic Sea 1220 km long and 55 billion cubic meters in a year.
