Also included is a statement by Senator Ted Cruise, one of the authors of the bill. According to him, Nord Stream 2 represents a “critical threat to US national security”.

Earlier, as the Handelsblatt newspaper wrote, US Ambassador Richard Grenell, who later resigned, admitted that, despite the US election campaign, the process of adopting new sanctions against Nord Stream 2 could be quick. 

In turn, the Russian ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, ruled out the possibility of halting the implementation of the project by the United States.
