Nord Stream 2” cannot go into operation without the necessary certification, said German Chancellor Olaf Scholz: “We cannot accept the Russian recognition of the separatist areas.”
Putin had previously confirmed in a TV speech that he recognized the independence of the pro-Russian separatist regions of Donetsk and Luhansk. He considers it necessary to make this “long overdue decision,” said Putin. At the same time, he concluded an agreement on “friendship and assistance” with the representatives of the two pro-Russian separatist regions.
