The Ukrainian foreign Ministry has welcomed U.S. sanctions against the "Nord stream — 2"

The Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine welcomed the US decision to impose additional sanctions against the "Nord stream-2".

Earlier, the head of the U.S. Department of State Mike Pompeo reported that the US state Department has published recommendations in the framework of the law on counteraction to Russia through sanctions, including the document "Nord stream 2" and the second line of the "Turkish stream 2".

"We welcome the further steps the U.S. to end managed project "Nord stream-2", completion of which will be a serious threat to the solidarity of Europe. Ukraine as a reliable transit partner, looks forward to closer cooperation with the US and the EU to strengthen energy security in the region is in our common interests," - said the foreign Ministry in Twitter.

Currently, the construction of "Nord stream 2" is suspended, because the foreign partners have curtailed activities due to the threat of sanctions from the United States.
