In Ukraine in the coming week is going to adopt a resolution calling on the EU to abandon half of imported gas from Russia, and also from the " Nord stream – 2 ", write print and electronic publications of Russia.
according to the newspaper " Izvestia ", the originator of the document supports the head of the Ukrainian Parliament for international relations Anna hopko. Justification for adoption of the document, in the opinion of the author, is " Russian aggression in Eastern Ukraine and Aleppo, which needs to be stopped."
The forced reduction of gas supplies and the community is centrally located infrastructure project " Northern stream – 2 ", according to Ukrainian parliamentarians will be for the Russian Federation as a deterrent. Such proposals are unlikely to be supported in Brussels at the highest level. This was told "Izvestia" a senior researcher at the Committee for global security at the Centre for studies in security (CSS) ETH Zurich doctor Severin Fischer." certain members of the European Union for a long time trying to stop for a while implementation of the " Nord stream – 2 ". But this question is administered by the European Commission, only she can evaluate the Project from a position of implementation of European law. However, I do not think that the gas sector has the opportunity to be the target of the sanctions policy against Russia ", Greg said Fisher. The project "Northern stream – 2" involves the construction of 2 pipelines with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year from the coast of Russia through the Baltic sea to Germany. The new pipeline is expected to build very close to the " Nord stream ". Partners of Gazprom in the project are the European organization for Engie, OMV, Shell and Wintershall Uniper. It was planned that they will become shareholders (in increments of 10%) project organization, Nord Stream 2, which is now 100% owned by Gazprom. Antitrust regulator Germany gave approval for the development of the joint venture, however, the Polish at the end of July raised objections. In early August, the project partners stated that it had decided to withdraw filed in Poland, the notification on the establishment of the joint venture. Now the parties are looking for a new model of project implementation.
