Russia claims US tries to squeeze it out of gas market

Russian Embassy in Washington rejected allegations that Russia is to blame for the natural gas leaks in the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 pipelines and confirmed Moscow is convening an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council.

The Embassy also implied that the United States could be behind the leaks, stating that "decades of developing energy trade between Moscow and European capitals have long become a thorn in the side of Washington strategists." It claimed that the US has been trying to "squeeze out Russia as a competitor using non-market methods and sanctions," including trying to replace Russian exports with the "expensive and anti-environmental" liquefied natural gas.
