Ukraine is "actively providing information" to the United States to expand sanctions against Nord Stream 2. This was announced by the Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States Oksana Markarova, reports Radio Liberty.

"In fact, sanctions due to Nord Stream have been imposed on all companies and all Russian vessels that are involved in this project. The sanctions are valid. Moreover, the list is revised every three months. By the way, we are actively providing information to our colleagues in the United States in order to to expand these sanctions.

These are the sanctions that were imposed by Congress on Nord Stream 2 AG, its head. A Russian company registered in Switzerland, in relation to which the so-called waver was applied, that is, sanctions were imposed, but they were temporarily lifted. And this is the waver that we heard about during the joint statement of the then German Chancellor Merkel, President Biden. Germany asked for just such a waver," the ambassador said.
