The head of the government of Lithuania Saulius Swarnali assured that his country will support the position concerning the inappropriate construction of the gas pipeline “Nord stream-2”, which Russia wants to supply gas to Germany and Europe to bypass Ukraine.

This was announced on his page in Twitter a press-the Secretary the Prime Minister-the Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Stolyarchuk.

“Lithuania is ready to support the position of Ukraine and Poland concerning the inappropriate construction of the Nord Stream gas pipeline 2” – he quoted the Prime Minister of Lithuania Saulius Skarnales.

We will remind, the Russian “Gazprom” and its European partners signed an agreement on the project “Nord stream-2” in 2015. It was planned to launch by 2019-mu – to supply gas to EU countries and to double the volume of supply in Germany.

A lot of Eastern European countries and the United States expressed concern that the pipeline may restrict the supply routes and energy security of the EU. Another problem is the pipeline will undermine Ukraine’s transit role, will be deprived of its fees to several billion dollars.
