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

WASHINGTON – Gasoline is unlikely to float throughout the Nord Move 2 pipeline if Russia renews its aggression in opposition to Ukraine, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken stated on Sunday.

“That pipeline … doesn’t have any gas flowing through it at the moment. And, in truth, it’s a supply of leverage on Russia because to the extent (Russian) President (Vladimir) Putin desires to see gas flowing thru that pipeline – if and when it becomes operational – it’s very unlikely or hard to see that happening if Russia has renewed its aggression on Ukraine, if it takes renewed action,” Blinken advised NBC‘s “Meet the clicking” software.
