The US decided to inflict a “fatal blow” on the “Nord Stream 2”

The administration of the current US President Donald Trump intends to adopt a new package of sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 project. Reuters learned about the preparation of the restrictions.

According to sources familiar with the situation, the presidential administration is preparing a new package of restrictive measures, which “could deal a fatal blow to the project of Russia and Germany.” “We struck one blow after another, and now we are ready to drive a stake through the heart of this project,” said one of the agency's interlocutors.

Earlier, a senior US government official decided that the Russian Nord Stream 2 project had no chance of being implemented and would not be launched. He expressed the opinion that the pipeline “will never transport Russian gas.”

On December 11, 2020, the US Senate approved a defense budget containing new sanctions against Nord Stream 2 as well as the Turkish Stream gas pipeline. Prior to this, the document was adopted by the US House of Representatives. Now he must go to the American president for signature.

Construction of Nord Stream 2 came to a halt in December last year after the US threatened to sanction the owners of the pipelayers.
