Nord Stream 2 is meant to 'divide Europe' - Blinken

United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken blasted on Thursday Moscow and the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project, calling the pipeline a "Russian geopolitical project intended to divide Europe and weaken European energy security."

The Biden administration backs the sanctions legislation passed in 2019 and 2020, Blinken said in a statement, adding that "any entity involved in the Nord Stream 2 pipeline risks US sanctions and should immediately abandon work on the pipeline."

Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak asserted in February that the construction of the disputed infrastructure is more than 95% complete.
