The leader of the Free Democratic Party and Minister of Finance Christian Lindner does not support the proposal of his party deputy Wolfgang Kubicki to launch Nord Stream-2.
This was stated by the spokeswoman of the Ministry of Finance in Berlin on Friday, reports the German agency DPA.
According to the spokeswoman, the minister considers the proposal of Kubiki, who is Lindner's deputy in the party and vice president of the Bundestag, "incorrect and absurd." The Free Democratic Party is part of Germany's ruling coalition together with the Social Democrats and the Greens.
Kubiki's call was also rejected by the federal government. Deputy government spokesman Wolfgang Buchner said that the German government does not plan to put the pipeline into operation, and there is no question of reviving the project.
As reported, Bundestag Vice Speaker Wolfgang Kubicki spoke in favor of opening the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to fill gas storage facilities for the winter, despite Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
