Biden to waive sanctions on company in charge of Nord Stream 2
"The Biden administration has been clear that the Nord Stream 2 pipeline is a Russian geopolitical project that threatens European energy security and that of Ukraine and eastern flank NATO allies and partners," the spokesperson said
мне может кто-нибудь объяснить, как Северный Поток 2 повлияет на энергетическую безопасность Европы, кроме того что исключит из игры изношенные трубопроводы региона 404?

И еще прекрасное:
This planned move also sets up a bizarre situation in which the Biden administration will be sanctioning ships involved in the building of Nord Stream 2 but refusing to sanction the actual company in charge of the project.

Sources close to the situation say that top Biden officials have determined that the only way to potentially stop the project — which is 95% complete — is to sanction the German end-users of the gas.
And the Biden administration is not willing to rupture its relationship with Germany over Nord Stream 2.
