Global Analysis from the European Perspective. Preparing for the world of tomorrow

Russia will cut Ukraine off from gas after Nord Stream 2 complete, says Kiev’s president, bemoaning Western ‘support’ for pipeline

Russia has outmaneuvered Kiev by overcoming Western objections to its Nord Stream 2 pipeline, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has said, warning that Moscow could cut his country off from energy supplies once it is complete.
The politician made the claims in an interview with Germany’s Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, published on Monday. He claimed that the pipeline, which will link Siberian gas fields to consumers in Western Europe by means of a conduit under the Baltic Sea, was a “trump card” for Moscow. Now, he claimed, the Kremlin has a “royal flush” because it was supported by leaders in countries like Germany and France. Source RT
