Novak: Nord Stream 2 over 95% complete

Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak (pictured) estimated on Sunday that the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline was over 95% complete.

"Despite the destructive approach" from the United States, Moscow is "confident" that the entire project will be finalized, he told the Russia-1 television.

Russia's former energy minister also underlined that "the pipeline will not be idle" as European countries and companies are interested in gas supplies from Russia and the "project is fully consistent with European legislation."
