Policy Angela Merkel’s government has been criticized by the Spokesman for the Alternative for Germany (AdG) faction in the Bundestag on energy issues, Steffen Kotre, regarding the Nord Stream 2 project.

The politician believes that at the moment when the United States began to “torpedo” the Nord Stream-2 project, which is extremely important for Germany’s energy security, the chancellor and the government should defend the gas pipeline and not surrender to the Americans.
Kotre noted that in 2018, having defended the pipeline before EU legislation, Merkel and the government could not oppose the United States, which connected Nord Stream-2 with Ukraine destabilized by them.
Under US pressure, the federal government obeyed this economic attack and capitulated
