Department of State insists on growing transit flows “as soon as possible”.
The US State Department insists that Russia has increased the volume of its gas supplies through Ukraine.
Washington recalled that earlier Moscow had ensured that it had enough natural gas to cover the needs of Europe.
This, according to Bloomberg, led to a request from the US State Department to increase fuel transit through Ukrainian territories.
The publication reports that this was announced on the eve of a department representative Amos Hochstein, who stressed the need for such measures in the context of the pan-European gas crisis.
He explained that the US authorities are seriously alarmed by the previously announced Russian company & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221; refusal to reserve increased fuel transit volumes for October. According to Hochstein,
Ukraine has gas pipelines, the capacity of which will supply fuel to EU countries. Why Russia should not give up growing supplies to its neighbor.
& # 8220; She should do it as quickly as possible & # 8221; – Hochstein will express the demands of the American side.
Earlier, Topnews reported the statement of Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky, who believes that the construction of & # 8220; Nord Stream 2 & # 8221; has become an asset in the hands of Russia.
