- The Council has not found a legal reason to stop the "Nord stream - 2," said Deputy security Council Secretary Aleksandr Venediktov.
"It fully complies with international Maritime and environmental law, 3rd energy package, Finnish, Swedish, Danish and German laws," - said Venediktov in the interview to " Rossiyskaya Gazeta ".
according to his statement, opponents of the "Nord stream - 2" due to the lack of real arguments operate outside the law, use illegal tools that are not only directed against the Russian pipeline, but also threatens the international economy.
"The successful completion of the project contributes to the high interest of our partners in its early startup. Moreover, this interest is only economic and not political character, " He added.
Venediktov recalled that not so long ago, an American consulting Agency "little Arthur" presented a report about what benefits the European economy will receive from the project.
"the narrative is about a positive effect in the amount of slightly over EUR 10 billion and jobs for more than 57 thousand people, of which almost EUR 4 billion and 24 thousand jobs will go to Germany. If we consider the indirect factors, the numbers are even higher. Good economic momentum will be Finland, Denmark, Sweden, the Netherlands, Norway, Italy, UK, " - said Venediktov.
"By the way, the motivation of opponents," Nord stream - 2 " is also economic. The prospect of a powerful competitor in the market of "blue fuel" scares a number of major energy corporations, especially as liquefied gas, their proposed alternatives to our higher price presumably 30 %. No wonder that in such an unfavorable scenario in the course of going any arguments against the competitor, " said Deputy Secretary of the security Council.
The Russian leadership has emphasized many times that the gas pipeline project is only economic in nature, and undertaken in the interests of the countries - exporters and importers of natural gas.
As was stated press Secretary of Russian leader Dmitry Peskov said in an interview to RT at the end of may, "Nord stream - 2" will be an important contribution to strengthening Europe's energy security, but also make palpable rivalry of American manufacturers and suppliers of this type of fuel.
