United States of America may impose sanctions against companies engaged in Nord Stream 2 construction

"We would be delighted if the project did not take place", she told reporters in Berlin.

About it reports the German edition of N-TV with reference to the representatives of the governments of the USA, Germany and the EU.

ClientEarth said it has submitted a complaint to a Finnish court to stop the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline through the country.

The Nord Stream 2 project is also raising security concerns and could lead to USA sanctions, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Energy Diplomacy Sandra Oudkirk said Thursday in Berlin.

Despite taking a hard line against Russian Federation in recent years over its aggression in Ukraine and other matters, Merkel has defended the pipeline project, saying Germany badly needs to secure its gas supplies.

In addition to environmental concerns, it claims the project - run by a consortium led by Russian energy firm Gazprom - "threatens the European Union's energy security, making the EU more dependent on fossil fuels".

As previously reported "FACTS", the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko warned Germany from participating in the construction of the "Nord stream-2", proposing as an alternative to the modernization of the transit pipeline passing through the territory of Ukraine.

Oudkirk said Washington's objections included past Russian moves to turn off gas supplies to Ukraine and other countries, adding that it would perpetuate "vulnerabilities" in Russian-European ties for another 30 to 40 years. Up to now Turkey received Russian gas transited via Ukraine, Romania and Bulgaria.

A close ally of German Chancellor Angela Merkel issued a stark warning to the United States about the risks of placing "America First", accusing Washington of seeking to block a planned Russia-Germany gas pipeline to shore up its own exports.

"The new project would permit new technologies to be placed along the pipeline route, and that is a threat", she said.

Denmark must still rule on whether the pipeline can be built near its coast, and other routine permissioning processes are still under way in Sweden and Russian Federation.
