The Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine (GTSOU) is backing the new round of sanctions announced by Washington against the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, a project which undermines transatlantic security and threatens Europe’s energy security.
According to the statement of Ned Price, spokesman for the US Department of State, the United States will continue to work with allies and partners to ensure that Europe has a reliable, diversified energy supply network that doesn’t undermine collective security.
“Our goal in all of this is to reinforce European energy security and safeguard against predatory behaviour,” he said.
“Our position on Nord Stream 2 remains unchanged,” said Sergiy Makogon, General Director of the GTSOU. “We work every day to improve our gas transportation system and our regulatory documents, so EU customers are offered more guarantees of reliability and flexibility. GTSOU has free capacities for the natural gas transit from Russia in the volumes that Germany needs and we urge to stop the construction of the sabotage pipeline.”
