Zelensky unhappy about format and essence of U.S.-German agreement on Nord Stream 2 pipeline

Kiev, August 20 - Neftegaz.RU. Ukrainian President V.Zelensky is unhappy about the format and essence of the agreement between the United States and Germany on the Russian project for the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, which circumvents Ukraine.

Zelensky stated this in an interview with the Washington Post publication and 4 other media outlets, the Ukrainian News Agency reports.
Ukrainian President said:
  • Certainly, I am not happy about this arrangement, if I can call it that, and the format in which it was achieved
The Washington Post has published only an article with selected quotes from Zelensky, and the full version of the interview has not yet been published.
The newspaper wrote:
  • Asked if he viewed the pact between the U. S. and Germany as a betrayal, Zelensky shrugged and smiled
  • Zelensky said that he did not “really have much faith” that all of the commitments in the agreement would be met
  • Zelensky said he would once again appeal to Biden to intervene during their meeting at the White House on August 31
Ukrainian Foreign Affairs Minister Dmytro Kuleba has said that he would have liked to see a stronger wording of the U.S.-German joint statement on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

The Office of the President of Ukraine has said that it considers the joint statement by the U. S. and Germany on Russia’s project for the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline as a framework statement and that it expects further legal steps to effectively implement the agreements that were reached.

Zelensky himself had not commented on the U.S.-German joint statement on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline until now.
