However, the company involved in the Nortstream 2 project is under threat of US sanctions and should immediately stop work on the pipeline, Blinken said. He noted that the US government is monitoring efforts to complete the project and is evaluating information about the companies involved in the project.

According to the minister, the gas pipeline is a Russian geopolitical project whose goal is to divide Europe and weaken European energy security. As for the president, North Stream 2 is a good deal – for Germany and Ukraine, and for our allies and partners in central and access Europe, Blingen said.

The 1,200-kilometer pipeline will carry 55 billion cubic meters of natural gas to Europe. Now the submarine Nortstream gas pipeline, operating since 2011, has the same capacity. Gas from the North Stream 2m project can also be used by the Czech Republic, which is connected via the new Eugene gas pipeline.
