Kuleba: De-occupation, Ukraine’s energy security should be among conditions for launch of Nord Stream 2

The condition for the launch of Nord Stream 2 should be the de-occupation of Ukrainian territories and the energy security of Ukraine, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba has said.

The minister posted this on Twitter.

“Nord Stream 2 is primarily a threat to Ukraine’s security, not just our economy. We are against NS2. The condition for its launch should be the deoccupation of our territories and energy security of Ukraine. Fair compensation for threats. I stated this in my Berlin talks last week,” the minister wrote.

As Ukrinform reported, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba said at a joint briefing with his German counterpart Heiko Maas in Berlin on June 9 that security and economic guarantees of maintaining the transit of Russian gas through Ukraine after the launch of Nord Stream 2, if completed, should be the subject of detailed international negotiations.

Maas, in turn, said that the German side had warned the Kremlin that the completion of the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline was tied to the continued transit of Russian gas through Ukraine.

  • This a very reasonable position to adopt. Which unfortunately will not be supported by the krauts, the frogs, or any other of Ukraine’s enemies. But what about their so-called friends: the Budapest Memorandum signatories? They could stand four square by this principled and decent man. Now’s your chance Joe: offer this deal to putler, stating that failure to comply will result in catastrophic economic damage for his nazi shithole.

    • “Maas, in turn, said that the German side had warned the Kremlin that the completion of the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline was tied to the continued transit of Russian gas through Ukraine.”

      “Tied to” with the Germans means more tongue-in-cheek verbal diarrhea when it doesn’t happen. Just like their verbal diarrhea when they say they support Ukraine’s sovereignty and borders but won’t sell their mothballed military hardware because it might upset the mongol Hitler. Well, who’s to say tying the two pipelines together won’t upset Vladolf too?! Instead of worrying about upsetting him they should enjoy it since they are from the original land of fascism.
