EU head of diplomacy Josep Borrell told PAP that he is not going to discuss the Russian Nord Stream 2 pipeline during his visit to Ukraine. “The purpose of my visit is to focus on the political situation and security of Ukraine. & lt; … & gt; As for Nord Stream 2, (the solution to the issue. – Ed.) is now in the hands of the German regulator, “Borrell said, answering the question whether he is going to raise the topic of the gas pipeline at the talks in Kiev. he also added that in a conversation with the Ukrainian side he intends to declare that Europe “very” supports it. According to him, the EU is Kiev's closest partner, which is firmly in favor of preserving the sovereignty of the former Soviet republic. Nord Stream 2 is laid from Russia to Germany along the bottom of the Baltic Sea. It was completed in September, and on December 29, Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller said the pipeline was fully ready for commissioning. However, the launch requires the German Federal Grid Agency to complete the certification of the pipeline operator. It was suspended in November, as the regulator considered that Nord Sream 2 AG should create a German subsidiary and submit a new application for certification on its behalf. After the Federal Network Agency makes a decision, the European Commission will express its opinion. According to Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak, certification should be completed within the first half of 2022.
