It specifies that “it is a question of volumes of transit through Ukraine after 2024 according to new volumes of purchases of the Russian gas by the companies of the EU countries under new contracts”. “And that in this regard we are also concerned about the decarbonisation of the European Union economy,” the statement said.

  • I think Biden fucked Ukraine pretty badly. He is the russian agent, not Trump. Cleverly done by the Dems. I’m totally shocked. This pipeline is an assault on Nato’s stability and our security interests. Biden should be impeached for high treason asap. We cannot afford to have a kgb asset as our president. Sadly the Dems, other than GOP, live in political collectivism and therefore will not join the GOP in a congressional effort to stop this shame and tell Germany to return to nuclear power if they want climate-friendly energy instead of importing piped russian farts.
