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."
The Russian-led pipeline in the Baltic Sea has almost been completed, despite US sanctions and opposition from some EU member states. The controversial project will double the amount of natural gas exported to Germany.
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.
