“Indeed, construction is on schedule and work on the Finnish site has been completed. No one already has any doubts that the Russian project will be implemented. Criticism of Nord Stream 2 comes exclusively from hopelessness. The gas pipeline is a unique project. It is necessary in order to supply cheap gas to European consumers, ”the deputy said.
According to him, the sanctions policy against the Russian project did not bring the expected result.
“Of course, the Americans expected that their gas would occupy a large percentage of the market in Europe. Therefore, they tried to interfere with the construction. But this is not an economy, but a pure policy. Everyone understood this for a long time and are biased towards such actions, ”Anansky concluded.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin at a press conference following talks with his Finnish counterpart Sauli Niinistö announced that work on the Finnish section of the Nord Stream 2 project had been completed.
