Russian Ambassador Antonov said that European countries have become even more dependent on the United States

Russian Ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov on the air of the Soloviev LIVE TV program, he called Washington the only winner from the freezing of the Nord Stream 2 project, reports RIA News.

According to him, the United States made great efforts to stop the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline, which they eventually managed to do, while Nord Stream 2 simply hung. The diplomat stressed that this allowed Washington to impose its expensive liquefied natural gas (LNG) on European countries, which they were forced to buy, which made them even more dependent on the United States.

Former political scientist and economist Andrey Suzdaltsev declaredthat the United States is currently trying to make the Russian military special operation in Ukraine fail. Thus, in his opinion, Russia will become a gas and oil colony European Union (EU). The expert also noted that the West is counting on the defeat of Russia by the fall, after which it will be easy to dictate its terms.
