In the U.S. Congress, Republican Andy Barr has proposed to impose new sanctions against pipe-lay vessels and foreign entities involved in the construction of the gas pipeline Nord stream – 2. It is reported by RT on Tuesday, October 29.

The bill proposes to ban entry to the territory of the United States to individuals who assist the aforementioned vessels and subjects in the construction of pipelines for export of certain types of Russian energy.

In addition, the document provides for granting to the President powers which it can impose sanctions against entities that “provide financial and insurance services lay the companies that support the export of some Russian energy”.

Barr believes that through Nord stream – 2 Russia spreading its influence in Europe.

We will remind that the Minister of energy of the USA Rick Perry called the project of gas pipeline Nord stream-2 the greatest impact on diversification and security of European energy supplies.

The construction of Nord stream-2 to Gazprom’s plans had been completed by the end of 2019, but it delayed due to the fact that Denmark has not yet given permission to lay the pipeline through its territorial waters.

In case of refusal, Gazprom is able to lay the pipe on a different route, however, it would increase the time and cost of construction.
