MINSK, 3 October (BelTA) – Official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova commented on U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken's statements regarding Nord Streams, TASS reported.
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken told reporters on 30 September that the U.S. had now become “the leading supplier of liquefied natural gas to Europe. He also accused Russia of “weaponization of energy”.
According to Maria Zakharova, such reasoning demonstrates the motives of the United States and NATO to destroy the Russian gas pipelines. In fact, Blinken confirmed that Washington had such motives and he did it quite openly, she said.
Maria Zakharova also noted that the Russian Federation has never weaponized its energy resources. For many years, the country has been uninterruptedly supplying Europe with gas.
