“Recent US sanctions projects will harm enterprises from such friendly countries as Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland. They will also turn European energy policy into a toy for the United States, ”he said.
He noted that there will be an “inevitable split” between the EU and the USA, and great damage will be done to both sides.
“European energy issues are the business of the Europeans, and they will remain,” Buchele emphasized.
In his opinion, the possible imposition of US sanctions could also complicate negotiations between the EU, Russia and Ukraine on a new transit agreement.
