EU technology is being harnessed to help a Russian pipe-laying ship to complete the controversial Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. A DW investigation reveals just how Moscow is bypassing US sanctions.
The US State Department called for companies to cease activity on the controversial pipeline or face sanctions. The US has slammed the project as a Russian plan to "divide Europe and weaken European energy security."
Eighteen companies have terminated their participation or are in the process of withdrawing, following US sanctions threats. The US has only imposed sanctions on one company, but has threatened to "take further action."
A German environmental NGO claims Finance Minister Olaf Scholz offered to aid the import of liquid gas from the US if the Trump administration dropped threatened action against the Russian pipeline project.
