"After our exit from the European Union, will this be a sensible extra measure that we might take that might assist with our diplomatic efforts?"

According to sources, the position of the tramp due to a desire to force Russia out of the gas market in favor of its own supplies of liquefied natural gas, as well as wanting to maintain Ukraine's status as a major transit country for Russian gas to Europe. In exchange, the American President wants to propose to Angela Merkel, the abolition of duties on steel and aluminum.

Earlier, trump had already criticized the construction of the Nord stream-2, saying at a meeting with Baltic leaders that "Germany would pay billions of dollars for energy resources from Russian Federation...and this is bad".

With Europe's largest economy, Germany is the world's largest importer of natural gas and it is planning to increase reliance on gas to generate power as it phases out its nuclear power plants.

The $11 billion project would double the amount of natural gas Russian Federation can funnel to Western Europe from newly tapped reserves in Siberia.

Oudkirk said Russian Federation could use the project to place monitoring and listening devices for surveillance under the Baltic Sea, which increases the risk of the pipeline from an intelligence and security point of view.

The US believes that Moscow will be able to exert greater influence over Berlin as well as cut about $1 billion a year in transit fees paid to Ukraine for piping natural gas to Europe, and that dependence on the pipeline will weaken the impact of western sanctions on Moscow.

Oudkirk rejected suggestions that Washington opposes the pipeline because it wants to increase US liquefied natural gas exports to Europe.

The United States also opposes the Turkish Stream offshore pipeline that would bring Russian gas via the Black Sea to Turkey for the same reasons, she said.

She said the Baltic was a congested, sensitive military area.

"This pipeline can't be used to blackmail or negatively affect any country", he said.

Altmaier has said he is optimistic that a "substantial" amount of gas will continue to flow through Ukraine when the Baltic pipeline starts operating.
