Austria’s government supports the implementation of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline project because it is in the interests of entire Europe, Russian Ambassador to Vienna Dmitry Lyubinsky said in an interview with the Ober·sterreichische Nachrichten newspaper, Eurasia Diary reports citing TASS.

He noted that some of the Western mass media and politicians tend to demonize Russia, especially in the context of the Nord Stream-2 project. But pragmatic Europeans, in his words, see the advantages of this project. "Nord Stream-2 is profitable for Austria and entire Europe. That is why that country’s government has repeatedly voiced its support to the implementation of this project," Lyubinsky said.

The new 1,200 kilometer pipeline, basically following the same route as Nord Stream, will traverse economic zones and territorial water of five countries, namely Russia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, and Germany. The pipeline’s capacity will be 55 billion cubic meters of gas a year.
