US sanctions ensure unfair competition - Russia

Russian Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stated on Wednesday that the United States sanctions against Russian gas pipeline projects are being imposed so Washington would "ensure unfair competition."

"The use of political pressure" in this case shows "the weakness of the American system," she told the TASS news agency. Besides force, the US does not have any other "effective tools," according to Zakharova.

Earlier today, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo revealed that the Nord Stream 2 and the second line of Turk Stream 2 gas pipeline projects will be included in the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA).
