"The quick commissioning of Nord Stream 2 can certainly lead to an increase in supply on the European gas market and thereby contribute to lower prices," the German MP said in a comment to TASS.

According to the ICE Futures exchange, as of October 14, gas prices in Europe were set at $ 1157.5 per 1,000 cubic meters.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said earlier that an increase in supplies via the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline could ease tensions on the European gas market.

In October, the leader of the Angry Bonds investment community, independent economist Dmitry Adamidov, in an interview with the Economics Segodnya FBA, spoke about the situation in the global energy market.
