Speaking about the energy policy of Ukraine, the diplomat said that the United States supports a stable, independent, self-sufficient energy future of Ukraine.

“The future will not depend on Russia, and not be a tool of Russian aggression. We therefore oppose the pipeline “Nord stream-2″ which on the European continent would undermine our goal of energy diversification and energy independence,” – said the diplomat.

Deputy Secretary of state added that the pipeline, at least “significantly undermine the independence of Ukraine, its energy sector and its economy.”

We will remind, the company “Nord stream-2”, the founder and the sole shareholder of which is Gazprom, intends to start construction of the pipeline in 2018, and complete it before the end of 2019.
