The Nord Stream 2 project should not be linked to the situation surrounding Russian opposition activist Alexei Navalny, and the gas pipeline’s construction should be completed, German Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel said.

“I believe that these issues should be viewed separately. I also think that the construction of Nord Stream should be finished. This is a project carried out by economic actors from Russia and Europe. […] I believe it would be unreasonable to link this economic initiative to the Navalny situation,” Merkel said at an annual summer conference on Friday.

She reiterated the official stance of the German government, according to which, Berlin views the U.S. sanctions against the gas pipeline as “extraterritorial” and rejects them.

    • Funny how the birthplace of fascism cannot now recognize it. They are blinded by money while Ukraine will pay the price and their response will be more verbal yet idle concern for Ukraine. Generally politicians are so myopic they can’t see past the next election.

    It’s good to have a Congress that doesn’t live in Never-Never Land like the fat Muslima Merkel.
    Nord Stream II will benefit mafia land and mafia land murders its opposition, one by one. So, yes, we should link those two. Destroying NSII is a good punishment for the crime syndicate and Germanystan.
