The controversial natural gas pipeline Nord Stream 2, which, among other things, will run in the Danish sea area, will become something. That will happen even if the United States has threatened Russia with sanctions.
This is underlined by Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister and former Minister of Energy, Alexander Novak, according to the news agency dpa.
The pipeline will transport gas from Russia to Germany. Novak says 95 percent of the project has been completed.
“We are convinced that it will be completed despite the destructive actions we see from the United States, which, of course, hamper the realization of this project,” Alexander Novak told Russian state television.
It is about a week ago that Russia started laying pipes in Danish waters. Work stalled in December 2019 when the United States threatened sanctions.
The work in Danish waters south of Bornholm was started in February after a ‘successful completion of marine surveys’. This was stated by the Russian-German consortium behind the project.
The Russian energy company Gazprom is the dominant player in Nord Stream 2.
Russia believes that the project is in the best interests of Europe and European companies. The United States argues that the project will make Europe too dependent on Russian energy sources.
Critics are currently calling for the project to be halted after Russia jailed Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
