EU disapproves US sanctions against Nord Stream 2, – Borrell

The chief EU diplomat is visiting Russia

EU High Representative for Security Affairs Josep Borrell shared his negative view of the U.S. sanctions spreading on European companies, which were imposed agaist the construction of Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. The diplomat said so during his ongoing visit in Russia on February 4, as Interfax quoted him. 

“It is obvious that the EU stands against sanctions of third countries against European companies, which perform legal actions. Nord Stream 2 is not the general European project. The decision about construction of this pipeline should be made by EU member countries, which participate in the project”, he said.

According to him, the European Commission insists that the pipeline meets the respective EU legal framework.

As for the Russian gas, Borrell marked that the EU does not prefer any of kinds of natural gas; as a customer, it is mostly interested in a transparent and well-regulated market – which means both pipeline gas and liquefied natural gas.

According to him, the EU-Russia relations in energy sector should be more concentrated on the energy transition. The idea is to refuse from the fossil energy sources in the context of fighting the climate changes. The natural gas will play the leading part in this transition.

  • “The idea is to refuse from the fossil energy sources in the context of fighting the climate changes. The natural gas will play the leading part in this transition.”

    This clown has no fucking idea what he’s talking about. Geology lesson for the Putin puppet.

    Natural Gas

    It is formed when layers of decomposing plant and animal matter are exposed to intense heat and pressure under the surface of the Earth over millions of years.

    Fossil Fuel

    Fossil fuel is a general term for buried combustible geologic deposits of organic materials, formed from decayed plants and animals that have been converted to crude oil, coal, natural gas.

    Spot the difference!
