Academician Chersky returns from Germany to the Russian Federation

The ship Akademik Chersky, owned by Russian Gazprom and considered the main contender for the completion of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, is returning from Germany to the Russian port of Kaliningrad, Ekonomichna Pravda reports.

The positioning system data for sea vessels showed that the Akademik Chersky should arrive in Kaliningrad on October 7. Since May, the ship has been at the German port of Mukran, a bridgehead for the construction of the pipeline.

Recall that in July, US congressmen approved tougher sanctions against Nord Stream 2.

US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said the US hopes that Nord Stream 2 would not be completed.

At the end of September, the International Group of Mutual Insurance Clubs for Ship Owners refused to insure ships that may participate in the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline under the leadership of Russia due to the threat of US sanctions.

Russian officials are proposing to give Germany a discount on gas to complete the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
