German Rügen urged the German authorities to use Nord Stream 2

German Rügen urged the German authorities to use Nord Stream 2

The heads of the seven cities of German Rügen wrote an appeal to the regional and federal governments of Germany with a request to use Nord Stream 2.

Among the signatories are the heads of the city administrations of Bergen, Sellin, Sassnitz, Binz and other cities. In their opinion, the course proposed by Berlin to abandon Russian energy carriers is not correct and jeopardizes the country’s energy security.

The letter was sent to Federal Minister of Economy Robert Habeck and the head of the government of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Earlier in July, it was reported that the flow of gas to Germany via the Nord Stream pipeline had dropped to 19.5% of the gas pipeline’s capacity.

Against this background, the representative of the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, a member of the parliamentary committee on energy and climate protection, Steffen Kotre, called for the speedy launch of Nord Stream 2.
