U.S. tells Ukraine to quietly accept the Russian pipeline


According to Politico, the Biden administration is urging an unhappy Ukraine not to make waves over the completion and launch of the Russia-Germany gas pipeline.

U.S. officials have signaled that they’ve given up on stopping the project, known as the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, and are now scrambling to strike a grand bargain with Germany.

At the same time, administration officials have quietly urged their Ukrainian counterparts to withhold criticism of a forthcoming agreement with Berlin involving the pipeline, warning Kiev that public opposition to the agreement could damage U.S.-Ukrainian relations.
