"So you can see that it is not just an economic issue but there are also political considerations", she noted. Russian Federation and Germany has position on the mutual benefit of the construction of North Stream 2 project.

Merkel said she listened carefully to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko's concerns over the Nord Stream 2 at a meeting in Berlin on Tuesday.

Earlier it was reported that 2 of the Nord Stream AG received permission for the construction and operation of the pipeline in Germany, like "Bagnet".

In Warsaw in January, then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that "the United States opposes the Nord Stream 2 pipeline", adding, "We see it as undermining Europe's overall energy security and stability and providing Russian Federation yet another tool to politicize energy as a political tool". German Chancellor Angela Merkel promised to consider the impact of a new Russian-German gas pipeline on Ukraine as plans progress.

The fact that Ukraine would lose revenue from gas transit was also echoed by Merkel during a joint news conference with Poroshenko. Ukraine earned around $3 billion in Russian gas transit fees. But, of course, the issue is about that the part of the gas will be transited through the Ukrainian territory, in other words, transit through Ukraine remains to be important.

Opposition to Nord Stream 2 also comes from within Germany where a cross-party alliance of politicians from Merkel's conservatives, the environmentalist Greens and pro-business Free Democrats warned in February against allowing Nord Stream 2 to go ahead.

The firms involved have already invested more than 4 billion euros ($5 billion) in the project.

"To change the legal foundation retroactively for political reasons would damage the trust in legal certainty", Wolfgang Büchele, chairman of the German Committee on Eastern European Economic Relations, said in a statement. It will deliver 55 billion cubic meters of Russian natural gas per year to the European Union, through a pipeline across the Baltic Sea to Germany.
