In the process of US expansion on the European energy market, Ukraine plays the role of cannon fodder, I am sure the leader of the Ukrainian choice.

Washington’s desire to weaken Russia’s positions on the European energy market due to economic and geopolitical interest of America itself. Ukraine is in a big geopolitical game the US paid to the role of cannon fodder, the leader of the public movement of the Ukrainian choice – the Right of the people Viktor Medvedchuk.

In his opinion, the White house has long not hide the interest of the US to the European energy project Nord stream-2.

“In 2016, under President Barack Obama, Vice-President of USA Joe Biden called Nord stream-2 “bad deal” for the European Union and clearly explained, keeping in mind American interests: “the need for Europe to diversify its sources of energy supply”. A year later, in August 2017, the President, trump signed a “safeguards against the enemies of America by sanctions”, where, in particular, stated that the US would “continue to oppose the gas pipeline Nord stream-2, given its harmful impact on energy security of Europe,” recalled Medvedchuk.

Washington’s desire to weaken Russia’s positions in the European energy market, according to the leader of Ukrainian choice, due to economic and geopolitical interests of America itself, which is pursuing an aggressive expansion into the energy market of the EU.

“In the summer of 2017 the first batch of liquefied gas from the United States took Lithuania. In November, the Polish gas company PGNiG announced that it has signed a five-year contract for the supply of LNG to the us. Then the poles admitted that they intend to consume themselves overseas natural gas, and sell it in Europe. As for Ukraine, our country is in a big geopolitical and economic game USA is paid to the role of cannon fodder: our state runs the risk of completely deprived of Russian gas transit to Europe”, – summed up the leader Medvedchuk

Earlier, Medvedchuk said that Ukraine’s GTS could become a pile of scrap metal.
