The administration of the President of the United States Donald trump is afraid of competition in the international arena on a number of fronts, said the head of Russian foreign Ministry Sergei Lavrov.

«I think the actions of the current US administration (like the administration (of Barack — ed) Obama’s legacy is, unfortunately, in spite of the line of the President of trump during the election campaign, remained, even became more intense, more assertive) there is a fear of fair competition in a number of spheres: energy, gas supplies to Europe», — he said at a press conference on Monday.

Lavrov recalled the situation when instead of Russian gas Europe is imposed on liquefied gas, which is much more expensive.

«This opposition (to the project of gazoprovoda — ed.) «because of the North-2», it is called politicized, leading to the division of Europe, to the strangulation of Ukraine. All of this comes from the United States. Openly they forced the Europeans to abandon the «Nord stream-2″, although the delivery of gas to Germany via Nord stream to 2 thousand kilometers shorter than through Ukraine, and half or two times cheaper than in Ukraine», — said the Russian foreign Minister.
