Peskov: Possible sanctions against NStream-2 companies illegal

MOSCOW, Jul 2 (PRIME) -- Any sanctions against companies building the Nord Stream-2 natural gas pipeline would be illegal as it is a multinational project with no political background, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday.

УWe believe that any sanctions against the companies involved in the project would be illegal. It is an absolutely commercial international project lacking any political rationale. It is exclusively based on the principles of commercial profit for the countries which participate in it,Ф he said.

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 GermanyТs E.ON and BASF, Royal Dutch Shell, AustriaТs OMV, and FranceТs Engie.
