Germany could sanction Nord Stream 2 if Russia invades Ukraine

German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said on Thursday that the gas pipeline Nord Stream 2 could be included in the list of sanctions that will be levied against Russia if it invades Ukraine. She confirmed the government is working on a "strong package of sanctions" that would involve the pipeline for the first time, after Chancellor Olaf Scholz warned Germany could halt the project.

Baerbock repeated Germany will not send weapons to Ukraine, stating it would negatively impact the diplomatic track the West is currently pursuing with Russia. However, she stressed that "the cornerstones of the European peace order are non-negotiable."
