The key provisions of the agreement are as follows:
The USA and Germany will not tolerate if the Russian Federation uses gas as a weapon;
Germany will send a package of measures to support the European energy market;
Berlin will take measures at the national level and at the level of the European Union if Russia continues "harmful activity" (it’s also about sanctions);
Germany will allocate more than 200 million Euros to support the energy sector and remove Ukraine’s energy dependence;
Berlin agrees to establish a billion dollar ‘green fund’ to support Ukraine's energy security;
Germany will use all levers in the Russian-Ukrainian negotiations on the extension of the transit contract between Kiev and Moscow.
In addition, the State Department reported that the United States had contact with the Ukraine and Poland in the development of these agreements.
