Putin said that it is still possible to send gas through the active part of the Nord Stream-2 pipeline. It is now up to the European Union whether Europe will take gas through this line. In this regard, Putin said, Russia is ready to start such supplies. The ball is now in the EU’s court. All they have to do is turn on the tap if they want to.
