The United States still considers Nord Stream 2 a bad deal and will continue to oppose the use of the pipeline as a geopolitical project of Russia. This was stated by State Department spokeswoman Jalina Porter during a telephone briefing.
Nord Stream 2 is a gas pipeline consisting of two strands. The length of each of them is 1.2 thousand km. They run from the port of Ust-Luga (Leningrad region) to the German Greifswald. The total capacity of the gas pipeline will be 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year. This project is actively opposed by the United States, which previously promoted its liquefied natural gas in the European Union. In addition, the project has other opposing countries, including Ukraine, which is afraid of stopping the transit of Russian gas through its territory.
Earlier, Gazprom announced the completion of the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
