Nord Stream-2 Pipe-Laying To Restart In Denmark
According to a local regulator, the laying of the pipes for the Nord Stream-2 natural gas pipeline in Danish waters is to resume, Reuters reported.
The construction of the pipeline on Danish territory was suspended for a year as the US threatened sanctions. The US has continued to expand the scope of sanctions against service providers and the finance vessels involved in the construction of Nord Stream 2, including the project in US Defense Law as a target of further sanctions to kill it.
This prompted Russia to accuse the US of hybrid warfare earlier this month.

"This is indeed a variant of hybrid warfare, it is being used by the United States as a hybrid war," said Peskov, as borne out by the Russian news agency TASS, when asked if the Kremlin had an earlier testimony from Russian businessman Oleg Deripaska agreed.The sanctions were hybrid warfare.
"Take the sanctions against Nord Stream - it is a pure hybrid war that continues like a war that is accompanied by unfair competition," TASS quoted Peskov earlier this week.
Russian pipeline gas in Europe is a direct competitor to US liquefied natural gas.
Despite the sanctions offensive, some analysts in Russia expect that the pipeline will be completed in the next year and could deliver larger quantities of natural gas to Germany.
The 1,230 km pipeline project, valued at $ 11.6 billion, will double the capacity of the existing Nord Stream Canal to a total of 110 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year. The project is being led by Gazprom in cooperation with a number of European energy groups, including Anglo-Dutch Shell, Austria's OMV, German Uniper and Wintershall-Dea as well as the French energy supply company Engie.
The United States, several European countries including the Baltic States and Poland, and the European Union (EU) have raised concerns about Russia's use of gas sales and its gas monopoly, Gazprom, as a political tool.
