The Nord Stream 2 project envisages the construction and operation of two pipelines with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year from the Russian coast across the Baltic Sea to Germany. The gas pipeline bypasses Ukraine. On September 10, Russia announced the completion of construction. Nord Stream 2 will be launched after certification, according to forecasts, in early 2022.

On November 15, 2021, the Federal Grid Agency of Germany (BundesNetzAgentur, BNetzA) approved the application of Naftogaz Ukrainy to participate in the certification process of Nord Stream 2 AG, which is the operator of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.
