"I think that the new government will demonstrate that Germany is interested in implementation of the Nord Stream 2," he said.
Schroeder also said that he advocates a relief in anti-Russia sanctions imposed by the European Union due to improved situation in Donbass.
"The sanctions in the oil and gas sector are exacerbated not by the European Union, but by the United States of America.
"Regarding the sanctions imposed by the European Union, we should speak about their relief instead of exacerbation, if there is any progress in Donbass, and it has indeed been reached," he said. ■
