Ukraine should come to a compromise on Nord Stream 2 issue. The German side looks for this compromise and it is ready for it as RBK-Ukraine reported citing Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko.

“Concerning the Nord Stream 2, Germany said many times openly: it is our economic project, we want to complete it, we contributed a lot of investments in it, we believe that it will help us to diversify the sources of energy. Our position is diametrically-opposite and we communicated with our German colleagues that it is the case when we do not agree with you. They understand it and say: it is the case when we do not agree with you either. Our task is to come to a compromise in this case; Germany looks for this compromise and it is ready for it,” Prystaiko stated.

He added that German Chancellor Angela Merkel said many times that the precondition for the end of Nord Stream 2 construction is the assurance of the particular volume of pumping through Ukrainian pipelines

“It is the compromise, around which we are working now,” Ukraine’s Foreign Minister added.

Earlier we reported that the German ruling coalition drafted a new law that is supposed to protect the newly constructed Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline from the stricter rules of the updated EU's gas directive.
