US Senate passes Defence Budget Bill stipulating sanctions on Nord Stream 2

The US Congress passed a defence bill for 2020 on 11 December that includes new sanctions on contractors who are helping build Gazprom’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The curbs are aimed at preventing its completion, which is still expected this year, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

The US Senate has voted for a $738 billion defence budget, which includes sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline and military assistance to Ukraine, according to the results of the vote.
