Putin Told Off

While she’s been relatively quiet in recent months, at least where Ukraine is concerned, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been wagging her finger in the direction of Mos­cow this month, and we can only applaud her efforts. With debates ongoing about the direc­tion and partners involved in the Nord Stream 2 project – a pipeline due to run from Russia to Germany which will supply gas to a number of northern European countries, Merkel is said to have voiced her opinion in no uncertain terms in a recent phone call with Vladimir Putin in early April. “I made very clear that a Nord Stream 2 project is not possible without clarity over the future transit role of Ukraine.” Whether the Moscow monster pays any heed however is of course another question. Though it’s nice to see that the beginning of his fourth term as president has begun with a disquiet we can only hope will continue.
