Minister for Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba has compared the idea of some German politicians to “briefly” launch the Nord Stream 2 gas pipe with drug addiction, adding that “addiction to Russian gas kills.”
The head of Ukrainian diplomacy took to Twitter to share his concerns, Ukrinform reports.
“Calls by some German politicians to launch NS2 for a little while and close it later are totally irrational. This resembles drug addiction, when a person says “Just one last time!” without realizing the devastating consequences of each “last time”. Addiction to Russian gas kills!” Kuleba wrote.
As reported earlier, Wolfgang Kubicki Deputy Chair of the German Bundestag with the Free Democratic Party, which is part of Germany’s ruling coalition, in a recent interview, spoke in favor of opening Russia’s Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to fill gas storages ahead of winter before shutting it down again.
