NORD STREAM 2:

  • U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken says the Nord Stream 2 pipeline being built from Russia to Germany is against the European Union’s own interests and warned Berlin of possible sanctions over the project. Germany is pushing for the pipeline’s completion despite sustained U.S. opposition for over more than a decade. Supporters of the gas pipeline have long accused the United States of undermining the project in order to increase sales of their liquefied gas in Europe.
