Vitrenko comments on Nord Stream 2 operator’s loss in German court.

Nord Stream AG has lost a lawsuit to exempt the Nord Stream 2 gas pipe from the requirements of the European Union's Gas Directive.

That’s according to Yuriy Vitrenko, Chairman of the Board of Naftogaz of Ukraine, who took to Facebook to share the news.

"Our strategy is to play by the same rules that the West lives by, and it pays off. Gazprom lost the Stockholm arbitration. Now, while trying to bring Nord Stream 2 out of European regulation, the so-called Third Energy Package, Gazprom lost in German courts," Naftogaz CEO wrote.

According to Vitrenko, Ukraine's main task is to ensure that these European rules apply all gas pipelines connecting Russia and Europe.

"It will be a hard battle. The Kremlin has been blackmailing Europe with gas shortages in the winter period. Some Western government officials don’t want to realize or pretend they don’t realize what European rules actually mean," the head of Naftogaz wrote, adding a quote from Taras Shevchenko’s poem: “Battle on and you’ll win.”

As Ukrinform reported, Nord Stream 2, the Nord Stream 2 construction operator on August 25, 2021, lost a case in the Supreme Land Court of Düsseldorf to exempt the pipeline from the requirements of the EU gas directive.
