U.S. imposes sanctions on vessel involved with Nord Stream 2

The United States has included the Russian pipe-laying vessel Fortuna, involved with Nord Stream 2 to another sanctions list, Ekonomichna Pravda reports citing the US Treasury.

The sanctions were also imposed against the Russian company KVT-RUS, which owns the vessel.

Restrictions are imposed following US CAATSA (Countering America's Adversaries with Sanctions).

These sanctions follow the ones imposed on January 19. Then they provided for a ban on exports, banking and foreign exchange transactions, blocking of assets and property.

As a reminder, Nord Stream 2 AG has submitted a request for the construction of a gas pipeline in German waters.

Earlier, German concern left the Nord Stream 2 project.
