Moscow (Sputnik)-The situation in Ukraine, where the United States is deepening the conflict by supplying Kyiv with increasingly powerful weapons, seems alarming, Anatoly Antonov, Russian Ambassador to the United States, said Saturday.
“The United States is increasingly drawn into the dispute with the most unpredictable consequences for the two nuclear powers,” Antonov said in a live show broadcast by Soloviev.
Antonov described the situation as “warning” and retaliated against Moscow as Russia and the United States are the two major powers responsible for global security and Washington is supplying Ukraine with increasingly powerful weapons. He said he was urging.
Diplomats added that US policy has made Europe more dependent on Washington, especially due to the freeze on the Nord Stream 2 project.
“A great deal of effort has been made by Americans to dismantle NS1. [Nord Stream 1] The project, and finally they succeeded today … NS2[Nord Stream 2] The project has hung up. Who won? Of course, the United States is pushing expensive LNG to the world at high prices. Europe is becoming more dependent on Washington. “
Nord Stream 2 is a gas pipeline project capable of carrying 55 billion cubic meters per year, enabling gas transportation from Russia across the Baltic Sea to Germany. Both the United States and Ukraine strongly oppose this project. Moscow urged Western nations to stop politicizing the launch of Nord Stream 2, claiming it was a profitable commercial project for both Russia and the European Union.
Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine on February 24, after the separated republics of Donetsk and Luhansk sought help to fend off Kieu’s provocation. Since then, the United States and other Western nations have provided financial assistance and weapons to Kyiv, putting economic pressure on Moscow.
