He noted that the Russians still had some technical capabilities to lay pipes.

"We are now discussing, including here, how to finally cast a long shadow on this project," Kobolyev emphasized.

According to him, Washington's sanctions policy on Nord Stream 2 has become "one of the most important steps" to support Ukraine's energy security.

"We hope that the U.S. Government will continue its efforts in this direction," the Naftogaz CEO said.
