Russia wants to pay for their Western geopolitical project in Ukraine and is therefore blocking the project, Putin says.
Actions against the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline are trying to make Russia pay for the West’s geopolitical project in Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed this opinion on Wednesday, February 17.
“Why is everything so revolving around Nord Stream-2? They want to make Russia pay for their [West’s] geopolitical project in Ukraine”, – Putin said.
“In fact, everything is quite primitive. We have understood this for a long time. This is the world we live in”, – he added.
It should be noted that the day before, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said that Nord Stream-2 is already more than 95% built. He expressed confidence that the project will be completed.
