The United States Congress approves a draft law that sanctions the Nord Stream 2

The United States House of Representatives supported the draft law on the US defense budget for next year, which provides for sanctions against companies that provide for the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. This was announced on Facebook by head of NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine Andriy Kobolyev.

“The United States House of Representatives has just overwhelmingly supported (377 versus 48) the draft law on the US defense budget for next year. In addition to the decision to provide military assistance to Ukraine in the amount of $300 million, this document also contains mandatory sanctions against companies that ensure the construction of the Nord Stream 2”, the statement said.

He noted that the next step would be to vote for the draft law in the Senate and the signing of the law by US President Donald Trump.
