Olga Petersen, a Hamburg MP from the Alternative for Germany party, said the US has increased pressure on Nord Stream 2.
Komsomolskaya Pravda wrote about this.
Thus, three American senators, headed by Ted Cruz, wrote a threatening letter to the leadership of the German port of Mukran. The point is that the port is used for the construction of a gas pipeline.
At the same time, the deputy stressed that the pressure increased in early August, even before the «poisoning» of blogger Alexei Navalny.
Petersen stressed that Germany is interested in the construction of Nord Stream 2. German and European companies are involved in the project. If they abandon it, they will immediately suffer losses. In addition, for Germany in the long term, this may entail a rise in gas prices.
The deputy spoke in favor of lifting sanctions against Russia and completing the construction of the gas pipeline.
