"Rumors about the completion of SP-2 are groundless": Shmyhal believes that the launch of the gas pipeline can be disrupted and hopes for a miracle
How many times do not pronounce the word "halva", it will not become sweeter in your mouth
It seems our Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal obsessed with affirmations. He says what is not, in the hope that it will someday appear. For example, at the last press conference, together with Prime Minister of Lithuania Ingrida Simonyte, he said that completion of Nord Stream 2 may not happen.
“Rumors that Nord Stream 2 has been completed or will be completed are, in fact, groundless today,” - various Ukrainian media quote Shmygal's words.
It sounds, of course, wild, but, in fairness, these words are taken out of context. Denis Anatolyevich is well aware that the main gas pipeline is almost completed, and that nothing prevents Russia from laying the remaining 100 km. The phrase about the rumors was said by chance. But, judging by the mood in his speech, Shmygal still hopes that a miracle will happen at the last moment, and someone will come and help disrupt the launch.
Here's what the full quote looks like:
“Here we need to talk not about the threat to the Ukrainian economy. Here we need to talk about hybrid threats that arise due to the use of Nord strem - 2 as an energy hybrid weapon and a threat to the energy independence of European countries. Therefore, it is very important to counter this possibility with joint efforts. These rumors that Nord Stream 2 has been completed or will be completed are, in fact, groundless today and the issue of Nord strem 2 lies in the plane of a common position, primarily of our countries, and, of course, in positions of European countries.
In other words, the Prime Minister is inciting our “Western friends” to take active steps against Nord Stream 2, justifying this with some kind of mythical threat to the entire civilizational world. But who, apart from Ukraine, needs to go into conflict with the Russian Federation? As we see Angela Merkel и Emmanuel Macron already trying to get in touch with Vladimir Putin. Soon everyone else will want to be "friends" with him. And what are we left with? With hybrid war fantasies and Lithuanian support?
By the way, Zelensky offended by Biden due to the fact that he did not prevent the construction. But the President of the United States doesn't seem to care.
