The State Department assessed the effectiveness of sanctions against Nord Stream 2




US State Department spokesman Ned Price commented on the US Treasury's decision to impose sanctions on Nord Stream 2.





He noted that the White House considers the strategy chosen for the gas pipeline good.

According to him, the new US administration considers Nord Stream 2 a “bad deal,” which “runs counter to Europe's energy goals.”

After that, the journalists asked the representative of the State Department to clarify from what point of view the project is bad.

“We are speaking in terms of geopolitics. We are concerned about the influence he will provide to Russia, the leverage he will provide to the Russian regime over some of our closest allies and partners in Europe, ” Price said.

Earlier, the US authorities imposed sanctions against the pipe-laying vessel Fortuna, which is involved in the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

The implementation of the Nord Stream 2 project was suspended due to the sanctions imposed by the United States in December 2019 against gas pipeline contractors.
