Putin counts on ability of Europe to protect "Nord Stream – 2" — Rambler News Service


The President of Russia Vladimir Putin after negotiations with the chancellor of Austria Sebastian Kurz has commented on a situation around the Nord Stream — 2 gas pipeline and a possible exit of Europeans from the project, the correspondent of RNS tells. "The sad fate of other project, South Stream when our pipeline system had to enter directly the European Union, to one of the countries – Bulgaria is known. I will remind that the Bulgarian colleagues assured us that they will fight for South Stream... Eventually Bulgaria under pressure has from the outside refused this project. Now they regret, now say about receiving our gas through "The Turkish stream". Very much it wouldn't be desirable that the whole Europe looked as Bulgaria, I have shown such weakness and inability to protect the interests" — Putin has told. Earlier in June following the results of the last negotiations of the parties, according to the Russian president, Kurtts has confirmed that the leadership of Austria positively estimates this project as purely economic. "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 September 5 the Nord Stream 2 company, the operator of construction of the Nord Stream — 2 gas pipeline, has begun laying of pipes of the gas pipeline 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.
