Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy hopes German Chancellor Angela Merkel has Nord Stream 2 pledges in place, ahead of her visit on Sunday.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said he is hoping German Chancellor Angela Merkel will give him "guarantees" over Russian gas transit fees to Europe during her visit on Sunday.
Merkel is committed to opening the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline from Russia to Germany through the Baltic Sea that is threatening a main source of income for Ukraine.
What does Zelenskyy want?
Zelenskyy told the newspapers of Funke Media Group that he wanted "guarantees" for his country "that Russia will pledge a minimum amount of gas to be passed through Ukraine's pipelines," despite the completion last week of Nord Stream 2.
