The United States of America is likely to strengthen sanctions against Russia due to its occupation of the Crimean peninsula in 2014. Rick Perry, the U.S. Secretary of Energy said this, as Reuters reports.
"U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry said on Saturday that Washington will most likely continue to toughen sanctions on Russia after its annexation of Ukraine’s territory of Crimea in 2014," the message reads.
He stated that in Warsaw after meeting with Polish and Ukrainian politicians.
As it was reported earlier, Poland, the USA, and Ukraine signed the gas treaty in Warsaw yesterday on August 31.
According to Piotr Naimski, the Polish government’s strategic energy infrastructure commissioner, the aim of the agreement is diversification of gas supply to Ukraine, which is dependent on Russia in this sphere.
Achieving this goal is possible if the liquefied gas terminal is developed in Świnoujście and Baltic Pipe gas pipeline, which connects Poland with Norway, is built.
