Threat to the United States on the application of extraterritorial sanctions to block 2 project Nord Stream (“Northern stream-2”) is unacceptable. About it RBC said the Ambassador of Germany in Russia géza Andreas von Geir. “We Germans and Europeans are well able to decide for themselves how best to ensure its energy security. We do not accept outside pressure, through extraterritorial sanctions,” he said.

In early June, a group of senators in the U.S. Congress saidthat prepared the text of the bill on new US sanctions against the “Nord stream-2”. According to the document, financial constraints may fall all vessels engaged in laying pipes for the project. The sanctions may relate to businesses, including companies insuring these vessels and their maintenance and the installation of special equipment. The sanctions prompted to enter retroactively, from December 2019. That the US imposed the first restrictions against companies involved in the construction of “Nord stream-2”, their managers denied entry to the US, and US accounts have been blocked.
