Europe pays high price for short-sighted sanctions, Peskov says
MOSCOW, 28 Sep — PRIME. European countries are now paying a high price for short-sighted sanctions against Russia, Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said.
“Residents of the European Union are forced to overpay because of the short-sighted sanctions policy against Russia,” he said.
Peskov called stupid and absurd versions that Russia is behind the emergency at Nord Stream, he also recalled that Russia has lost gas supply routes to Europe, and Europe, which is now paying a high price for short-sighted sanctions against Russia, is also in this not interested.
On Monday, Nord Stream 2 AG reported that on one of the lines of Nord Stream 2 (it was filled with technical gas after construction), an emergency occurred in Danish waters near the island of Bornholm, accompanied by a sharp drop in pressure. The reasons are unknown, an investigation is underway, the company specified. Then Nord Stream AG, the operator of Nord Stream, reported on the pressure drop on both lines. The reasons are also not known.
