US mulls many options to stop Nord Stream-2 construction

ЗадвижкаWASHINGTON, Dec 6 (PRIME) -- The U.S. is considering a whole range of actions to stop construction of Russia-led Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, National Security Advisor John Bolton said at a conference late Wednesday.

There are already a big number of sanctions against Russians and there will be more, he said.

A senior official at the U.S. Department of State said late Tuesday that a recent incident in the Kerch Strait should force the E.U. to abandon the Nord Stream-2 project.

The Nord Stream-2 project envisages construction of two lines of a natural gas pipeline with an annual capacity of up to 55 billion cubic meters, running from the Russian shore to Germany under the Baltic Sea. Russian gas giant Gazprom will implement the project together with Germany’s E.ON and BASF, Royal Dutch Shell, OMV, and Engie.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said after the incident that the Nord Stream-2 is a commercial project and not a single country will win if German or other European countries refuse to take part in it.
