The United States and Ukraine share the same position on Nord Stream 2. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stated this during a press conference together with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.
"We discussed not only the occupation of our territories and the illegal annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation. We discussed the issue of Nord Stream 2. It is a very sensitive issue for us as well. For Ukraine, I know that there are different positions on this issue in Europe, unfortunately, they sometimes do not coincide with the position of Ukraine. But in this regard, we are united with the United States," said Zelensky.
The President of Ukraine also thanked the United States for its strong sanctions policy in connection with the construction of the gas pipeline.
Earlier, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken arrived in Ukraine on an official visit on May 5. Today he has already met with MPs and Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba and President Zelensky.
