The registration of the subsidiary company of Nord Stream 2 AG in Germany is manipulative.
Chairman of Naftogaz Yuriy Vitrenko called Nord Stream 2 AG’s registration of a subsidiary, Gas for Europe GmbH, in Germany a “manipulation” and a “desire to be above the law. Putin continues to show his utter disregard for Europe and its legislation. This time it is about creating a subsidiary of Gazprom, Gas for Europe, which he wants to make the owner and operator of Nord Stream 2, which runs through Germany. We expect the new German government and the regulator not to allow Putin to do legal tricks and disregard European norms and laws,” said Vitrenko.
