Nord Stream 2 gas unlikely to flow if Russia renews Ukraine aggression, U.S. says

WASHINGTON – Fuel is not likely to glide through the Nord Circulate 2 pipeline if Russia renews its aggression towards Ukraine, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Sunday.

“That pipeline … doesn’t have any fuel flowing via it at the moment. And, in fact, it’s a supply of leverage on Russia because to the level (Russian) President (Vladimir) Putin wants to see fuel flowing via that pipeline – if and when it turns into operational – it’s most unlikely or onerous to see that happening if Russia has renewed its aggression on Ukraine, if it takes renewed action,” Blinken advised NBC‘s “Meet the click” program.
