the Bill on sanctions against the “Nord stream-2” submitted to the Senate of the United States.
according to RIA Novosti, about this world community was informed by one of the authors of the bill, Republican Senator John Barrasso.
He said that the document aims to expand the existing sanctions and, in his words, and Republicans and Democrats in both chambers of the American Parliament believe that the gas pipeline from Russia to Germany under the Baltic sea poses a threat to U.S. national security, and therefore should not be completed.
the Bill, in particular, proposes to impose sanctions against the insurers of the ships employed in laying the “Nord stream-2”, and for those who provide services for testing, inspection or certification for participants in the construction of the pipeline.
In December 2019, the U.S. imposed sanctions against companies doing the laying of the pipeline, demanding to immediately stop the construction.
