The United States has warned that firms that have invested in Russia's Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany were at the risk of sanctions, Reuters reported on Thursday. "And then numerous of the countries go out and make a pipeline deal with Russian Federation where they're paying billions of dollars into the coffers of Russian Federation".

"I have to say, I think it's very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia, where you're supposed to be guarding against Russia, and Germany goes out and pays billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia". "Therefore, choosing between Russian Federation and the United States, Germany does not want to lose markets in the United States", - said Borovoy.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry also condemned Trump, saying in a Twitter message that Trump's remarks about Germany and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation were "disgraceful, destructive and flies in the face of the actual interest of the United States of America". US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Energy Diplomacy Sandra Oudkirk told Bloomberg that the US is also anxious the pipeline could open ways for Russian Federation to install undersea surveillance equipment in the Baltic Sea. I think it's very bad for Germany.

He added the USA criticism of the planned Nord Stream 2 pipeline was rooted in Washington's desire to encourage European Union nations to buy more expensive liquefied gas from the U.S.

"We discussed it with Ukraine, [for example]".

It's a business model that couldn't have existed two decades ago. "I have such easy access to my fans and my customers". "But I do think they're starting to".

Former Vice President Joe Biden also sang a different tune during his time in the office.

The Kremlin has declared that Trump's political attacks on Nord Stream 2 are "unfair competition".

Berlin has given political support to the building of a new, Dollars 11 billion pipeline to bring Russian gas across the Baltic Sea called Nord Stream 2, despite qualms among other European Union states. "I know will fundamentally destabilize Ukraine". Dmitry Peskov said the United States objections to the new pipeline deal between Russian Federation and Germany are unfair. "Russian gas can and should be part of the European market, but that market needs to be open and competitive". "Russia understands that this project is dividing Europe, and is using that to its advantage". His position was supported by President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite.

"Supplies of pipeline gas do not lead to dependence of one country on another but to complete mutual dependence".
