Nord Stream should not be politicized over Navalny - Kremlin

The Nord Stream 2 is a strategic project beneficial for both Russia and the European Union that should not be politicized because of the case of Alexey Navalny, Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov (pictured) warned on Wednesday.

Moscow previously accused the bloc of using the alleged poisoning of Alexey Navalny as a "political tool" and an excuse to introduce sanctions on Russia.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel responded the pipeline is an economic project that should be kept separate from political issues but stressed such a decision would be made by the entire EU and not Berlin alone.
