At first the finance director hasn't excluded that the German company will leave the project of construction of the gas pipeline because of the American sanctions. Then the head of Uniper has assured that the concern will fulfill obligations. How to understand it? Photo: Thilo Schmuelgen/Reuters Nobody doesn't leave anywhere. The German concern Uniper fulfills the obligations on "Nord Stream — 2" and is convinced of advantage of the project. It is said in the statement of the head of the company Claus Schaefer which to TASS was transferred by the press service of Uniper. At the same time he has said that he with concern watches "a present sanctions spiral in world politics".
