“As for the mentions of the gas pipeline, we should probably stop mentioning it in the context of any politicization,” a Kremlin spokesman told reporters.

He stressed that this is a commercial project that meets the interests of both Russia and the EU countries, primarily Germany.

Earlier, as RIA Novosti reports, the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said that any resolution of the situation with the SP-2 would not change Russia's "behavior model" in the international arena.

In early September, the State Department noted that it was time for Germany to reconsider its attitude towards Nord Stream 2.

The Russian Foreign Ministry has issued an appeal not to issue ultimatums on this issue.
