Russia accuses Trump of trying to woo EU into buying US LNG

Nord Stream worker Russia accuses Trump of trying to woo EU into buying US LNG

The Kremlin spokesman said President Donald Trump's anti-Russia comments showed an escalation in the United States campaign to talk down Russian gas supplies to Europe.

"I have to say, I think it's very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia, where you're supposed to be guarding against Russia, and Germany goes out and pays billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia".

U.S. President Donald Trump said the gas pipeline would amount to a "captive" Germany, as it would lead to energy dependence on Russian Federation.

Since his arrival on Tuesday to Brussels for the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, Trump has already criticized several times those members of the Alliance who participate in the Nord Stream 2 project.

Canada also said it had doubts about the Nord Stream 2 project that would be used to export gas to Germany. Peskov said supplies of gas doesn't make one country dependent on another but only completes "mutual dependence" which he said guaranteed "stability and future development", Reuters added. "Ultimately, Germany will have nearly 70% of their country controlled by Russian Federation with natural gas", Trump said.

This sensitive matter [on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline] has been discussed in the European Union for some time.

He said that "Germany is totally controlled by Russian Federation, cause they are getting 60 to 70 percent of their energy from Russian Federation and a new pipeline". The Kremlin is confident that Nord Stream 2 will not make Germany dependent on Russian Federation.

"As for attempts to organize various attacks on this commercial project (Nord Stream 2 - TASS), we have said before that we consider this to be a manifestation of unfair competition", Peskov said.

"We're protecting Germany, we're protecting France, we're protecting all these countries (via Nato)".

He added the USA criticism of the planned Nord Stream 2 pipeline was rooted in Washington's desire to encourage European Union nations to buy more expensive liquefied gas from the U.S.

"A "and the stream-2" is a tool in the hands of the Kremlin of waging a hybrid war".
