Joe Biden’s administration is becoming the most pro-Russian in the modern era by lifting sanctions on the corporation that is building the Nord Stream 2 pipeline
Incredibly, the White House is actively helping Russian President Vladimir Putin. This was stated by Ted Cruz, a Republican senator, as quoted by Fox News television.
The channel echoed Cruz, a vocal opponent of the Russian pipeline, stressing that Biden is clearing the way for Nord Stream 2, while blocking the Keystone Pipeline in the US.
“The State Department’s 90-day report will name the CEO – a buddy of Russian President Vladimir Putin and former East German Stasi intelligence officer Matthias Warnig (head of Nord Stream AG) – among those subject to sanctions”, – Fox News points out.
It notes that “if successfully completed, the new pipeline will double Russia’s direct exports of natural gas to Europe and will be a huge geopolitical victory for Vladimir Putin.”
“Another knowledgeable source said that the US is unwilling to sacrifice its close relationship with Germany over the pipeline. Stopping the project, which is 95 per cent complete, would also require sanctions against German gas consumers, something the Biden administration is unwilling to do. Construction could be completed as early as this summer”,- Fox News points out.
He points out that on his first day in office, Biden cancelled the Keystone Pipeline in the US.
“The refusal to act against Nord Stream 2 clearly contradicts Secretary of State Anthony Blinken’s promises in March, when he promised sanctions to stop Nord Stream 2”, – the network stresses.
It quotes Texas Senator Ted Cruz as saying.
“Amazing! Unbelievable! Contrary to US law, Biden is actively helping Putin build the pipeline. Objectively speaking, the Biden administration is becoming the most pro-Russian in the modern era”, – Cruz wrote on Twitter.
Earlier, the publication Axios, citing two sources, informed that Joe Biden’s administration will not impose sanctions against Nord Stream 2 operator Nord Stream 2 AG.
It should be recalled that the Nord Stream 2 construction is nearing completion, at least on one line – B. The barge Fortuna will complete the Danish section in May and finish the German one in June. In order to do so, she will have to lay about 18 kilometres of pipeline within a month and a half. The pipelayer Akademik Chersky, on the other hand, is still at the beginning of the unfinished section of Line A. It has about 80 kilometres of pipeline to lay. He is scheduled to complete the work by the end of September.
