Photo: Stefan Sauer/dpa-Zentralbild/dpa/globallookpress.com the Statement of the U.S. President Donald Trump that Washington won't impose the sanction against the European companies participating in "Nord Stream 2" — the pragmatic and reasonable political decision, the head of committee on power of the State Duma, the president of the Russian Gas Society (RGS) Pavel Zavalnyi considers. "This pragmatic, reasonable political decision. I hope, it exactly the decision, a position, and it won't change. It is obvious that quite vigorous attempt of pressure upon the companies and states interested in the project, first of all on the government of Germany, the attempt of politicization of the project commercial in essence wasn't successful", - Zavalnyi has noted. He has explained that the failure of policy of pressure upon the project was confirmed by the statements of the leadership of Germany, including the German chancellor Angela Merkel, on the most different platforms, even in the Baltics where a position on the project another. Zavalnyi has also noted that, speaking about billions which the German people spend for gas from Russia, the president Trump probably "regrets that he doesn't spend them for the liquefied gas from the USA". "But also Japan - the strategic ally of the USA in the Pacific Rim arrives, preferring the Russian LNG to American. As it is offensive for the American producers, the Russian gas – more competitive, especially in the European market", - the head of the power State Duma Committee has told. Zavalnyi has added that, except prosaic commercial interests, the USA opposing the Nord Stream — 2 project has also economical political motives which sense – to reduce global competitiveness not only Russia, but, first of all, Europe and Germany as the strongest European power. According to him, "Nord Stream - 2" is capable to increase lead of Germany in the world market. "The pipeline on 1,8 thousand km is shorter (a route of deliveries through Ukarina. - RNS). Reduction of extent and use of new technologies and pressure does gas transportation much cheaper and more eco-friendly. Moreover, profit which the companies will get from implementation of the project will bring also income in budgets, both jobs, and a possibility of investments into other projects, including in subsidizing of RES which in Germany make €26 billion a year. I don't think that it won't be pleasant to the German people" — the head of RGO has explained. Earlier Donald Trump has said that the USA isn't going to impose sanctions against the companies which participate in construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline. At the same time he has noted that he considers this project unsuccessful for citizens of Germany who annually "pay Russia billions and billions of dollars" for energy.
