US Congress agreed on new sanctions against Nord Stream 2

The Senate and the House of Representatives of the US Congress have agreed on extended sanctions against the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline under construction. Bloomberg reports this with reference to informed sources.


According to the agency, insurance and certification companies that cooperate with Russian ships that are completing the construction of the pipeline may fall under the restrictive measures. The new sanctions already agreed will be included in the 2021 defense budget amendment, while the previously imposed sanctions will remain intact. The document should be adopted by the end of this year.

It is emphasized that the restrictive measures will not affect Germany and its officials.

In mid-October, the United States announced its intention to expand sanctions against the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. As stated in the US State Department, new sanctions may be introduced against companies providing services or funding for ships involved in the construction of SP-2.

In July this year, the US Senate approved a draft defense budget bill for the next fiscal year, which, among other things, introduces new sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 and Turkish Stream pipelines. It involves the imposition of restrictions on companies that directly or indirectly contribute to the completion of construction and commissioning of Russian gas pipelines. In particular, pipe-laying organizations, ship insurers, as well as companies involved in the maintenance and retrofitting of pipe-layers may fall under the new sanctions.

            Well, Russia still needs to finish building. It seems like the completion process begins again, you need to be in time ...

            And what kind of president will be is a political factor, not an economic one. They are extremely unanimous about the economic pressure on us!

                      That's why they stalled because they hoped for a freebie of other people's technologies. Don't be lazy. We need to create our own technologies.
                      Wherever you look, everything is Chinese. Previously, we did everything ourselves, but now we can't, we buy any little thing from the Chinese. I would be glad if China also announced sanctions to us. Maybe then they began to produce everything they needed faster. And this includes jobs and the development of industry and technology. And hence the standard of living.
                      And you, with your defeatist sentiments - ah, everything is gone, they don't give us technology, we can't do anything ourselves - just throw our country back into the 90s.

              I see, another switchman. So be it, I will explain 1 time, in what the connection is, and what is not.
              1. An article about the next sanctions of mattresses for SP 2, therefore - my question "who to believe, the president or mattresses" in relation to SP 2 - is logical for this article.
              2. Your screams about retirement age, old promises, the constitution - in no way correlate with the subject of this article, which is just another attack on the fan in the direction of the authorities, and the essence of the article is absolutely not important.
              PS wait or create a topic about power - I would love to read your point of view. And so - everything that you here spewed out of yourself in the comments (possibly except for the 1st comment) is called a flood, i.e. withdrawal of the discussion topic on any topic, as long as they do not relate to the topic of the article
              Therefore, I bow out, I have no reason to debate with someone like you anymore, I have already formed my opinion of you.

    As a member of the UN Security Council and a founding country, we could well raise the issue of sanctions wars and unfair competition in the UN. However, this does not happen because our government still does not want to play for high stakes, apparently preferring to use this whole situation as another information trump card in the style of "You see! The West weaves insidious intrigues" for internal propaganda.

      A structure as technically, technologically and environmentally complex as SP-2 must be insured and certified by reputable international profile companies before starting operation.
      What international company would take this risk? Who will voluntarily put their head in a noose? Who decides to ditch their business in one fell swoop, falling under US sanctions?
      Or will the Kremlin certify the pipeline?

        They knew about these sanctions for a long time, two months ago the International Group of Mutual Insurance Clubs for Shipowners (IG P&I) already announced that it would not insure ...

        The question is not to the Kremlin, but to the same Germany and others - if they really want to complete the construction of the SP-2 ("The German government intends to complete the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, despite the opposition from the United States" - Merkel), then they will give the go-ahead for this insurance and certification, if not ....

          So that's exactly what I'm talking about. The Russian company, in particular, will insure the stream or the Kremlin personally - what is the difference in principle for the same Germany?
          Will this greatly reassure foreign businessmen who have invested in the project? And minimizes their risks? What if a Russian sanctioned company issues some kind of filthy letter to the mountain?

            They will be reassured by the fact that the German ..... regulator, energy agency, etc. give permission for insurance and certification. structure ... If you are an insurer, you must have a moment of being recognized as an insurer, you have enough funds to cover insured events, etc. otherwise no one will let you get close ...

    It is emphasized that the restrictive measures will not affect Germany and its officials

    I see here, I don’t see here ... Double standards negative

    In mid-October, the United States announced its intention to expand sanctions against the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline- or maybe we will wait a little before "aiming at the fence", but ... Panic, is it terribly unpredictable veschITSA.

    Interestingly, and to what extent the sanctions against "flows" will expand. It seems that almost everything has already been banned, limited, threatened with dire consequences, and what next? Blatant unfair competition erected in national politics still allows the United States to achieve something. But this cannot last forever and must end sooner or later anyway. But how will it end up for the United States - a world war, a collapsed economy (the bubbles have already inflated to the point of obscenity)?

      How what?
      We all learned a long time ago - the inevitable eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano and the obligatory collapse of the filthy dollar. The older generation was confident in the imminent death of capitalism and the victory of communism on a global scale.

    US Congress agreed on new sanctions against Nord Stream 2

    We dragged the whole world into our "super-democratic" presidential elections in the United States, and he got carried away. But this is our constant distraction show. We change presidents like condom gloves, they only act as showmen in our financial scene. There were two, trying to "pose as real" from themselves, they were shot - the subsequent ones no longer "twitch". crying

    What are they pulling, how long can it be completed ... The pipes are in place, the pipelayers seem to have been fitted, there are permits from all participating countries, the length of the unfinished section is very small. Get together, finish the job in a month and this howl will stop.

    ... US Congress agreed on new sanctions against Nord Stream 2

    It looks like the northern stream for Russia is becoming a lightning rod - the main thing is that the Americans continue to take sanctions against it and not touch the rest of the economy, you look at this case Gazprom is gasifying Russia quietly laughing

    "It is emphasized that the restrictive measures will not affect Germany and its officials."
    And, how can this be ?!
    Miracles however!
    Thus, it turns out that Russia, on its own, is building a kind of gas pipeline towards Deutschland, and the fascists are not even aware of such events! ...
    Then suddenly, they were walking along the coast ... And suddenly! A pipe exuding gas in cubes! Sticking out of the sea ...
    What a twist! Forgive me, Lord of Germany. Well, do not waste the good!?. Well, let's screw on the valves, pump up the caches! .. request

    Nothing personal, just business. Otherwise, American LNG would not fit Europe for their price list.
    Our business is squeezed out by deputies and officials according to the same scheme, inciting SES, firefighters and others, that's how it is here.
