Sputnik reported that the United States has on multiple occasions spoken against the construction of Nord Stream 2, with President Mr Donald Trump blasting EU countries for their support of the project and urging them to abandon it in favour of American LNG. In an interview with Wall Street Journal managing editor Mr Gerard Baker, US National Security Advisor Mr John Bolton said that Washington was considering some options on how to “deter” Russia, including measures to stop the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

Mr Baker said that “Well, there are a lot of sanctions that are already in place against the Russians, more could come. The president has repeatedly said, for example, that Germany should cancel the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, that we are looking at a variety of things we could do there.”

The pipeline project, led by Russian state-owned energy giant Gazprom, has faced much criticism from the US and a number of European countries, including Ukraine, which benefits from gas transit from Russia to Europe.
