Nord Stream 2 will go to waste - White House

United States Deputy National Security Advisor Daleep Singh said in a press briefing that the Nord Stream 2 pipeline will "go to waste" in a move by Washington and its allies to inflict damage on Russia over its actions in Ukraine.

Singh called the move a "major turning point" in global energy independence from Russia, adding that the decision will relieve Russia's "geostrategic chokehold" over Europe.

"Russia's long previewed invasion of Ukraine has begun, and so has our response," said Singh, going on to praise President Joe Biden for responding quickly in lockstep with allies and partners.
