Moscow expects gas supplies through the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to begin by the end of 2021, Minister for Energy Nikolai Shulginov told. Work on the pipeline was suspended for a year in December 2019 after Swiss pipe-laying vessel Allseas abandoned the project due to possible US sanctions. Washington repeatedly attempted to hinder the construction process with sanctions, dubbing the project Russia’s geopolitical “weapon” and siding with ally Ukraine, which believes Nord Stream 2 will deprive Kiev of transit fees.
