The US government will continue to save new sanctions against Russian companies involved in the Nord Stream 2 project. US Presidential Adviser Joe Biden Jake Sullivan told CNN.
In addition, Washington is preparing a new package of sanctions for the situation with Alexei Navalny. “ We are preparing another package of sanctions to apply in this case, “ & mdash; Sullivan pointed out.
Earlier, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken discussed with Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau the threat posed by the construction of Nord Stream 2. Americans believe that this project threatens the European Union's energy security. According to Washington, the basis of energy security in Europe is a reduction in the supply of hydrocarbons from Russia. That is why the Russian gas pipeline has become a major threat.
The Americans have long opposed the project. It has to sell its liquefied natural gas to the EU. Washington has been imposing sanctions on building contractors for the third year in a row.
