The initiative directed directly against "Nord Stream — 2", already came for consideration to the U.S. Senate. The uncertainty factor Influence of the new document on "Nord Stream — 2" depends on terms of adoption of the new bill and construction of the gas pipeline, the director of Institute of national power Sergey Pravosudov told RNS. He reminded that the Danish authorities did not give permission to laying of pipes in the waters yet and in all ways delay decision-making. "If in the USA manage to adopt this bill before the project of construction of the gas pipeline is implemented fully, then everything will depend on contractors who or will continue to fulfill the contractual obligations, or refuse it under the pretext of sanctions. As a result all this will become a subject of mutual reproaches and judicial proceedings" — the expert emphasized.
