The United States has reached an agreement with Germany on completing the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, ensuring the energy security of Ukraine. Moments later, the German chancellor spoke with the President of Russia.
According to German media, Washington has reached an agreement with Berlin on the second line of the Nord Stream gas pipeline being built at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. The reports were confirmed by Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland.
– This is a bad situation and a bad gas pipeline, but we have to help protect Ukraine and I think we have taken some important steps in that direction – Nuland said in the Senate. According to the plan, the United States and Germany will support Ukraine in its efforts to diversify its energy sources and the so-called green transition.
However, the official did not say the amount of potential investments.

An important clause in the agreement is the issue of sanctions. Berlin had to take over if Moscow used gas transit as a coercive measure against Ukraine. At the same time, Germany will take steps to extend the Russian-Ukrainian gas transport agreement.
