US omits Nord Stream 2 sanctions from defense bill

The proposed text of the United States National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) bears no mention of the country's sanctions against Russia's Nord Stream 2 pipeline, the draft revealed on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the text proposed a $4-billion-worth initiative to contain the "Russian threat" in Europe.

The legislation will have to be adopted both in the House of Representatives and the Senate before US President Joe Biden can sign it into law.
