US slaps sanctions on 2 ships, company building N Stream 2

WASHINGTON, Nov 23 (PRIME) -- The U.S. has introduced sanctions against two vessels and one company affiliated with Russia that participate in the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project, State Secretary Antony Blinken said on Tuesday.

"The Department of State has submitted a report to Congress pursuant to the Protecting EuropeТs Energy Security Act of 2019 (PEESA), as amended,Ф he said in a statement.

УThe report lists two vessels and one Russia-linked entity, Transadria Ltd., involved in the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.† Transadria Ltd. will be sanctioned under PEESA, and its vessel, the Marlin, will be identified as blocked property,"

The name of the other ship was not disclosed.

Russian Ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov said that the new sanctions were signs of unfair competition.

"We see all attempts to counteract Russian oil and gas export to Europe as unfair competition undermining the free market principles," he said.
