MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Czech ambassador to Russia Vladimir Remek told Sputnik he believed that the preservation of Russian gas transit route via Ukraine was necessary for Europe’s energy security.
Remek, when asked whether Prague supported the Nord Stream-2 pipeline project, said that the Czech Republic primarily supported the diversification of energy resources.
“As far as the diversification of energy transit routes are concerned, it is important for it to be real diversification, not just swapping one route for another. This is why the transit route via Ukraine is necessary for Europe’s energy security. Speaking of Nord Stream-2, the Czech Republic insists that the project not be implemented in violation of European laws,”
