Germany could reduce gas flows through Nord Stream 2 pipeline

Graphic News

December 3, 2018 -- Germany’s Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer has responded to Russia’s seizure of three Ukrainian ships and their crew off the coast of Crimea by calling for Berlin to cut gas flows through the planned Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

Kramp-Karrenbauer – frontrunner to replace Angela Merkel as leader of Germany’s biggest political party – has also said the EU and United States should consider barring entry to Russian ships originating from the Sea of Azov in response to the incident, according to a Reuters report.

The $11billion Nord Stream 2 project, led by Russia’s Gazprom, aims to double capacity of the existing Nord Stream pipeline from late 2019, bypassing traditional routes through Ukraine.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
