The letter is published by the deputy Rebecca Kharms on the website. "We ask you, madam chancellor that your government has reconsidered and has changed the position on ''Nord Stream-2''" — it is said in the letter. Members of European Parliament have urged Merkel to choose the European way, but not a way "Germany on the first place". They have said that as a result of realization of "Nord Stream-2" Germany will receive 80% of gas of Russian Gazprom that will negatively affect power independence of the country and energy security of the EU. In the letter Berlin was also criticized for "ignoring of concerns in safety issues about which the Baltic States, NATO and the USA warn". "Your government doesn't follow the correct priorities, madam chancellor. Please, change a course!" — it is emphasized in the letter. "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. He directly will connect the Russian resource base and the European consumers. On November 6 the Nord Stream 2 company, the operator of construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, has reported that she has constructed totally already more than 200 km of the gas pipeline in territorial waters of Germany and in an exclusive economic zone of Finland. It is expected that construction of the gas pipeline will come to the end at the end of 2019. At the beginning of November Angela Merkel during the meeting with the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Andriy Parubiy has said that she treats the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline not so crucially as Kiev. Merkel has noted need of negotiations with Russia to create "the transit contract". As the chancellor has noted, Berlin wants that Ukraine remained the important transit country.
