The U.S. is determined to disrupt the “Nord stream-2”
The foreign Affairs Committee of the U.S. Congress prepares to consider a resolution calling to impose sanctions against the pipeline “Nord stream-2”, to prevent its construction. This was reported on the website of the U.S. Senate.
In the document, in particular, says that projects like “Nord stream-2”, pose a threat to European energy security and, consequently, the gas pipeline project should be canceled.
The newsmedia Germany and France reached a compromise on the “Nord stream — 2”
It also contains a call for the US administration to assist Ukraine to strengthen its defense capabilities and “to give a decisive rebuff the Russian aggression in the Black sea”.
Congress had already adopted a similar resolution against the pipeline project in December 2018. The document has no legal force, but it shows the attitude of the congressmen to the project.
At the end of January it became known that the United States stepped up pressure on the German authorities due to the “Nord stream-2”. Washington, in particular, requires that Europe supported the transit through Ukraine.
Also it was repeatedly reported that the administration of the President of the United States Donald trump is considering possible sanctions against European companies involved in the implementation of the pipeline.
