The Energy Minister of the USA has allowed imposition of sanctions against "Nord Stream — 2" — Rambler News Service


The Energy Minister of the USA Rick Perry has said that Washington keeps a possibility of imposition of sanctions against "Nord Stream — 2", RIA Novosti reports. "Sanctions are imposed by the president. This option remains, but is clear that the USA very much is afraid of lack of diversification in Europe" — Perry after the meeting with the Minister of Energy of Poland Krzysztof Tkhuzhevsky has told. He has emphasized that the position of Washington hasn't changed and the USA isn't supported by construction of this gas pipeline. According to Perry, the project "would increase dependence of many countries of Europe on Gazprom even stronger".

He directly will connect the Russian resource base and the European consumers.
