Britain considers Nord Stream 2 dangerous and asks for sanctions

British MP Daniel Kochinsky called the Nord Stream-2 pipeline dangerous and asked for sanctions.

“We are no longer deterred by our membership in the European Union, we should follow our American friends and impose sanctions on any company involved in the construction of Nord Stream 2. It is a real problem for many politicians,” Koczynski said.

According to him, the pipeline is especially dangerous for the member countries of the “Three Seas Initiative” (12 EU countries, which have access to the Adriatic Sea, the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea – note “Lenta.ru”).

The danger of the pipeline, according to the parliamentarian, lies in the fact that it leads to Russia “bypassing all gas and oil networks,” and also passes through the territory of NATO member states. Kochinski therefore called on British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to “be as brave” as the United States and impose sanctions on any company involved in the project.

The pipeline from Russia to Germany was supposed to be completed in late 2019, but U.S. sanctions prevented it from doing so. Due to the restrictions, the Swiss company Allseas, which provided the pipelayer, pulled out of the project. Russia had to look for another ship, and the completion date of the project was postponed indefinitely.
