Danish part of Nord Stream 2 to be completed by May - report

Nord Stream 2 AG company stated on Monday that the construction of two lines of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in Danish waters is planned to be completed by the end of April, Interfax news agency reported.

The building of the pipe began on February 6. Earlier, pipelayer vessel Fortuna was sanctioned by the United States, which caused a pause in the construction process due to the pressure from Washington. However, with Germany's continued support of the commercial project, the sea trials were resumed and have passed successfully.

Nord Stream 2 rose to the center of attention as Russia's opposition leader Alexey Navalny was sentenced to imprisonment, calling for wide international condemnation.
