The ship, which is to complete “North Stream-2”, returns from Germany to Russia
The Russian ship Akademik Chersky, owned by Gazprom and considered the main contender for the completion of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, is returning from Germany to the Russian port of Kaliningrad.
According to “European Truth”, this was reported by Reuters , citing data from the positioning system of ships.
The data showed that the ship “Academician Chersky” should arrive in Kaliningrad on October 7. Since May, the ship has been near the German port of Mukran in the Baltic, a bridgehead for the construction of the pipeline.
It will be recalled that on December 21, 2019, the United States announced the imposition of sanctions against the Nord Stream-2 pipeline, due to which a key contractor for Gazprom, Allseas, suspended work on the project.
Russia then said it would be able to complete Nord Stream 2 on its own, without the involvement of foreign contractors.
