The Republicans in the United States have called on President Joe Biden to reaffirm America's support for Ukraine's territorial integrity. The statement was published on the Twitter page.

"It’s unacceptable that our strategic partner #Ukraine found out about the shameful decision to waive critical Nord Stream 2 sanctions through the press and not the Biden Admin directly. President Biden must use the mandatory authorities Congress provided to stop the pipeline," the message says.

Republicans believe that if Nord Stream 2 is put in operation, it will make Ukraine more vulnerable to Russian aggression.

"I also call on President Biden to meet with President Zelensky to reiterate U.S. support for Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty before the summit with Putin. If Nord Stream 2 is operationalized, it will render Ukraine more vulnerable to Russian aggression. This is wholly unacceptable."

Earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky during a Zoom interview with Axios stated that Ukraine was unpleasantly surprised by the decision of the Biden administration to waive sanctions on Nord Stream 2 AG, which is responsible for the construction of Russia's Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany.

President of Ukraine notes that until the last moment he counted on the US efforts to stop the project, and he received the corresponding signals from Biden during their first telephone conversation. That is why the news of the waiving of some of the sanctions on Nord Stream 2 surprised Zelensky so much.

As we reported, the Biden administration will waive sanctions on Nord Stream 2 AG and its CEO Matthias Warnig who controls the construction of Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline into Germany. 

Meanwhile, President of Russia Vladimir Putin stated that the laying of the first line of the Nord Stream 2 has finished.
