The article says that if Russia "tries to complete the construction of the remaining kilometers of the pipeline in the Baltic Sea, the House of Representatives and the Senate are ready to adopt another sanctions law."

According to sources, sanctions may be imposed in February or March.

At the end of 2019, the United States announced sanctions against Nord Stream 2.

As stated by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, US attempts to hinder the implementation of the project contrary to the opinion of EU countries are a blatant example of unfair competition.

In turn, Austrian Foreign Minister Alexander Schallenberg emphasized that Vienna rejects US extraterritorial sanctions against Nord Stream 2, which contributes to the diversification of European energy supply.
