US Defense Budget Submitted Without Sanctions Against Nord Stream 2 Gas Pipeline against the Russian gas pipeline “Nord Stream-2”. RIA Novosti writes about this, the corresponding document is also published on the website of the Congress.
Judging by the document, the American authorities did not impose restrictions either against the gas pipeline, or against the state debt of Russia, or against Russian individuals suspected of violating human rights .
Previously, Congressmen introduced all these points into the agreed draft defense budget, but now they are excluded. Idaho Republican Senator James Risch, in particular, insisted that the American authorities should introduce anti-Russian measures to help Ukraine. According to him, Nord Stream 2 is intended to replace the gas transportation system in Kiev.
