As we reported earlier, after Denmark's permission for the building of the Nord Stream-2 in its waters the project of the Russian Gazprom can be stopped only by the Western sanctions. Head of Naftogaz-Ukraine NJSC Andriy Kobolev stated it on his Facebook page

"We expected this decision during the autumn. The principle position of Denmark delayed the project for some time but the geopolitical weapon can not be stopped by the tools, which regulate only trade relations. The effective counteracting to the aggression in today's world are sanctions of the Western countries. We are planning to support our Ukrainian diplomatists in this direction as much as possible," the message says.
