Russia vows to finish Gas Pipeline construction despite U.S sanctions.
Russia has vowed to complete construction of a major gas pipeline under the Baltic Sea, despite approval by the US Senate of sanctions that have also angered European states led by Germany.
Reports say the Nord Stream 2 pipeline between Russia and Germany, a key part of Moscow’s export strategy for state energy giant Gazprom, aims to deliver Russian gas to Europe via the Baltic Sea.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that Moscow does not like such actions, and neither does the European capitals, adding that sanctions would only lead to higher gas prices for European consumers.
