If Russia tries to use the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline as a geopolitical weapon, Germany will not block it.
According to the agency, the German authorities will focus on the European Union imposing sanctions on Russia.
Sanctions may be imposed in response to the Kremlin’s aggressive actions, but the authors say the pipeline is unlikely to be restricted.
According to the agency, Berlin’s unwillingness to take action against Russia at the national level may further exacerbate criticism of the pipeline agreement in the US Congress.
