Veli-Pekka Tynkkynen interviewed for Kauppalehti article

Veli-Pekka Tynkkynen was interviewed for the “Euroopan ja Venäjän kaasukiistan ainekset alkavat olla kasassa – Venäjä voittaa ja maakaasun hinta uhkaa raketoida” (European and Russian gas dispute is beginning to pile up – Russia is winning and the price of natural gas threatens to rocket), article, published today at Kauppalehti.

Commenting on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project, Professor Tynkkynen said:

If Denmark does not give permission to the pipeline project and the United States will implement its threat of sanctions, Germany will be angry with the United States, further weakening the relationship across the Atlantic. In that situation, Russia would surely use its gas pipelines going through Ukraine to put pressure on the pipeline project.
