    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – A delegation of Russian lawmakers plans to have a trip to Germany in October, during which it expects to visit the northeastern city of Greifswald, where the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipelines enter the German territory, the chairman of the Russian lower house’s energy committee told Sputnik.

    "We are planning [a trip] within the framework of the "friendship group." The delegation is set to visit Germany, presumably, on October 15-19. The agenda for the trip is currently being formed. According to the preliminary plan, we are set to visit Thuringia and Pomerania … and Greifswald, it is the site where the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 pipelines enter the German territory," Pavel Zavalny, who oversees relations with the Bundestag, said.

    The Russian lawmakers also planned to hold talks with the members of the German-Russian group in the Bundestag, Zavalny added.

    The composition of the Russian delegation has not been formed yet, according to the lawmaker.
