The US Senate prepared sanctions against the Nord Stream 2

Companies and ships that build Gazprom’s gas pipeline and lay deep-water pipelines (at a depth of more than 100 feet, approximately 30 meters) can be sanctioned.

In the sanction project, freezing of the financial assets of the heads of such companies is also supposed. In addition, they may be denied American visas and block real estate transactions in the United States.

The draft law provides for sanctions against companies that insure the gas pipeline.

“The Kremlin project North Stream 2 has no commercial meaning and is a geopolitical game of Moscow. The goal of the Russian project is to strengthen the energy levers in the EU”, the message says.

It was reported earlier that Andriy Kobolyev discussed the issues of countering the Nord Stream 2 project in the United States. Representatives discussed the risk that Gazprom could interrupt gas transit through Ukraine and cause another gas crisis.
