Compromise keeps Nord Stream 2 pipeline on track - Finland basic income trial fails to spur unemployed - German exports reach record level in 2018
About one-third of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline has been laid. There's growing opposition to the pipeline — including now possibly from France — and the EU is having difficulty figuring out how to deal with the project.
Time could be running out for the Nord Stream 2 project as France may withhold support. The project to bring gas from Russia directly to Germany has many detractors, especially America.
The Nord Stream 2 pipeline will drastically increase Russia's energy leverage over the EU. Such a scenario is dangerous for the bloc and the West as a whole, say the US ambassadors to Germany, Denmark and the EU.
The US ambassador to Berlin, Richard Grenell, has sent threatening letters to German companies working on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, according to a German newspaper. Grenell reportedly warns of possible sanctions.
