U.S. eyes sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline

By Mike Tyler

May 22, 2019 - The United States is considering imposing sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany, a project that critics say could be used by the Kremlin as a political weapon.

Opponents of the $11 billion scheme, which is under construction and will run from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea, fear Moscow will use it to increase its control over European energy supplies, according to The Financial Times.

They claim it has been designed to hurt Ukraine by reducing the amount of gas shipped through the country.
