Nord Stream 2 - Q&A - (8 December 2021)
Q: Do you believe, as Washington does, that the Nord Stream 2 pipeline should be used as leverage to deter Russia from invading Ukraine?
A: As the heads of state and government of the NATO Quint discussed several times last week, we are monitoring the Ukraine situation very closely. The heads of state and government expressed their determination to see its sovereignty respected. Strong messages were conveyed to Russia on the massive strategic consequences that a new attack on Ukraine’s territorial integrity would have.
