Nord Stream 2 is our contribution to outbreak of war in Ukraine, – German Justice Minister

German Justice Minister Marco Buschmann said on November 29, 2022, during the meeting of G7 Justice Ministers, that Berlin was responsible for Russia’s full-scale aggression in Ukraine, as it supported the construction of the Russian gas pipeline Nord Stream 2.

“I made a very clear statement here in Germany a few weeks ago, and I would like to reiterate it just as clearly now: Knowing what we do today, the decision to pursue Nord Stream 2 following the annexation of Crimea in 2014 was Germany’s contribution to the outbreak of the war in Ukraine. I believe it is our duty to confront this truth directly and to draw the right conclusions from it,” said the German Justice Minister.

This is not the first time when the head of the German Ministry of Justice has publicly criticized the decision to build Nord Stream 2. In October, he expressed the opinion that Angela Merkel’s policy after the annexation of Crimea largely led to the war in Ukraine.

Just a few days before Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Germany cancelled the certification of Nord Stream 2, and the German authorities have repeatedly emphasized that the pipeline would not be restored.

Angela Merkel herself said that she did not consider her decision to allow the construction of Nord Stream-2 wrong and that it put Ukraine in a more vulnerable position in front of Russia.
