The decision of the EC on Opal, a land link…

The decision of the EC on Opal, a land link from the Nordstream pipeline to Germany and the Czech Republic, as well as the plans to approve the Nordstream 2 project are proof that Europe does not want Ukraine as a gas transit route. It will lead to a total collapse of Ukrainian economy and statehood.

Disproof

The EU is not refusing Ukraine as a gas transit route. According to Reuters, the EC is seeking guarantees from Gazprom that it will retain transit through Ukraine when the contract expires in 2019. Besides that, the approval for Nordstream 2 is still pending. reut.rs/2fOzfPD,
