The US has threatened new sanctions against “Nord stream-2”

The United States is considering additional sanctions against “Nord stream-2,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said.

At a hearing in the House of Representatives, the State Department head noted that the pipeline is almost completed, but Washington continues to oppose the project.

“I have been working in the position for five weeks; the pipeline is 95% complete. I would like us not to find ourselves in a situation where it is almost finished,”

Blinken said.

Also, at the hearing, Blinken was asked why the United States is not taking action against 15 vessels that congressmen believe were involved in constructing the gas pipeline. They referred to open data. According to the Secretary of State, this topic should be further studied.

“It happens that something seems self-evident, but it is not,” he stressed.

Blinken also did not answer the question of whether the American authorities are aware of the company-the insurer of the pipeline — if so, why they do not impose restrictions against it. He did not directly respond, noting that the agency continues to “explore the possibility of sanctions in the future.”
