Nord Stream 2. Zelensky encourages US to adopt sanctions

“Europe’s gas blackmail must stop forever. We are grateful to the House of Representatives [Reprezentantów] To include an amendment to the NDAA that would stop Nord Stream 2. We ask all friends of Ukraine and Europe in the US Senate to support this amendment at the Senate level,” Zelensky wrote on Twitter.

In an agreement signed between the United States and Germany in the summer, the two countries pledged to take action — including sanctions — against Moscow if Russia uses gas as a weapon.
