US State Department: expect SP-2 to be stopped if Russia invades Ukraine
US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland said that the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline would be shut down if Russia invaded Ukraine. This is reported by RIA Novosti.
Nuland noted that the United States is already consulting with the new German government on this matter. The implementation of the project depends on his position, she added. At the same time, the United States sees on the part of Germany a willingness to take decisive action. The White House also noted that the fate of the project in the context of Ukraine is a top priority for the United States.
Earlier, the State Department said that Germany was ready to take serious measures against Nord Stream 2 in the event of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. At the same time, the US defense budget for the coming fiscal year was presented without sanctions against SP-2.
