Washington has repeatedly criticised the Russian-European gas pipeline project Nord Stream 2, citing alleged security threats and suggesting that Europe would become too dependent on Moscow. The US Senate is considering imposing sanctions against its construction to hamper the venture, which is due to be finished this year.
The US attempt to hinder the pipeline project Nord Stream 2, set to deliver gas from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea, bypassing Ukraine, with sanctions might come too late, the American outlet Bloomberg suggests. While the construction of the undersea part is almost finished and the venture is expected to be put into operation by the end of 2019, the US Senate is still to vote on the sanction bill.
