Nord Stream 2 will be implemented shortly
The Nord Stream 2 project will soon be completed, according to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. "The participants of Nord Stream 2 company, including Russian, German and other participants, are set to finalize the project," he said. Moscow has been angered by threats by the United States to impose sanctions on companies who take part in the pipeline project. The last, 160 kilometer section is all that needs to be completed before it can begin operating. Poland is also opposing the project, warning that Russia intends to use the pipeline to gain influence over the European Union. For its part, Russia believes the sanctions are part of a long-term policy of meddling in world affairs by the Americans. "The US sees no red lines for itself here, pursuing one simple purpose - to make sure that it has the ability and the right to do everything it pleases, both in global policy and in global economy, and in any field of human activity overall," said Lavrov.
