The Americans threatened the port of Mukran with consequences for any support for the Russian project.
US senators have threatened вЂњfinancial destructionвЂќ of the German port of Mukran, which stores materials for the construction of the Nord Stream 2, writes on Thursday, August 6, the newspaper Handelsblatt.
вЂњIf you continue to provide goods, services, and support for the Nord Stream 2 project, you will destroy the future financial condition of your enterprise,вЂќ senators Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton, and Ron Johnson said in a letter addressed to Faehrhafen Sassnitz, which operates the port.
The senators believe that the company вЂњdeliberately provides the project with important goods, services and other supportвЂќ, for example, in supplying the Russian crew of the ship Akademik Chersky with provisions.
вЂњYour supply of Fortune or Academician Chersky can definitely be sanctioned if one of the vessels puts a pipe for Nord Stream 2 into the water,вЂќ the letter says.
The senators stressed that their letter is evidence that measures can be taken against all those who will be connected with the project in any way вЂ” company managers, shareholders, and employees of firms.
