US Ambassador Richard Grenell’s letter to German companies, threatening them with a significant risk of sanctions over their involvement in the Nord Stream 2 has puzzled the country’s Foreign Ministry. This move does not reportedly adhere to diplomatic practices. However, an official statement on the matter has not been made yet.

The letter said "We emphasize that companies involved in Russian energy exports are taking part in something that could prompt a significant risk of sanctions. As a result, firms supporting the construction of both pipelines are actively undermining the security of Ukraine and Europe.”

Local firms involved in the project to build a gas pipeline from Russia to Europe that will divert gas flows away from Ukraine to Germany through the Baltic Sea, reportedly received the letters, picturing a grim future for them if they didn’t leave the project.
