Ukraine needs to start real work with Poland and other countries to become independent of Gazprom and avoid political gas blackmail in the future, Polish Ambassador to Ukraine Bartosz Cichocki has said.
Russian gas supplied to Europe via the Nord Stream has a carbon footprint that is four times smaller than from the US gas, Alexander Novak told reporters.
The State Department has notified in a report to Congress that it will not impose sanctions on the company overseeing the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline from Russia to Germany.
We must remember: this is not a question of business or just relations between the EU and Russia. It is a question of war, said the Ukrainian president in an interview with the French Le Figaro.
Joachim Pfeiffer was a critic of sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline and worked with Vladimir Putin’s party representative in Europe.
The German government’s hopes for an agreement with the US on the NS2 gas pipeline have been further undermined.
The world’s largest exporter of liquefied natural gas may help Ukraine build its own LNG terminal.
The Russian government has adopted a long-term programme to develop the LNG sector, envisioning a massive (triple, some sources say) increase in production over the next fifteen years.
The British government outlined an agreement with the fossil fuel industry to move away from extracting oil and gas from waters around the UK.
Germany and Austria are not the only ones lobbying for the Russian gas pipeline. The Dutch government has also been supportive of the Russians.
