UWC, AUOG address Bundestag regarding Nord Stream 2

The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) and the Association of Ukrainian Organizations in Germany (AUOG) have called on the Bundestag and the parliamentary groups of leading German democratic parties to impose a moratorium on Gazprom’s Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline project, Ukrinform reports, referring to the UWC website.

UWC President Paul and AUOG Chairman Rostyslav Sukennyk welcomed the decision by Germany’s energy regulator, Bundesnetzagentur, to suspend the certification process for the controversial Russian gas pipeline and raised concern about “the insidious role of Nord Stream 2 in fueling Russia’s aggressive policies targeting Europe.”

They reminded that Nord Stream 2 is an integrated part of the Russian Federation’s hybrid aggression against the EU, the commissioning and certification of which will endanger Ukraine and will lead to a number of negative consequences for Germany and for the whole Europe.   

“Russia has a history of halting and restricting gas supplies to its neighbours, such as Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, and to other parts of Europe to achieve political, economic and other objectives. Nord Stream 2 will enable Russia to stop using the Brotherhood pipeline through Ukraine, which will bring the Ukrainian people to their knees by turning off Ukraine’s primary supply of natural gas… Such energy starvation will force Ukraine back into Russia’s control,” reads the official letter.  

Finally, the UWC and the AUOG urged Germany “to secure firm commitments from Russia and Gazprom to ensure continued flow of gas through Ukraine, stop anti-competitive and coercive efforts to restrict gas supply to Ukraine and other European countries, and withdraw Russia’s troops from the borders of Ukraine.” 

It is noted that the official UWC/AUOG letters were sent to President of the Bundestag Ms. Bärbel Bas and to leaders of the Social Democrats, the Greens, Free Democratic Party and Christian Democrats parliamentary groups in the Bundestag.
