Joe Biden opposes Russian-German Nord Stream 2 pipeline

Proponents of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline between Germany and Russia hope US President-elect Joe Biden will make life easier for them. But they could be mistaken.
The US opposes the 1,200-kilometer pipeline and has threatened to impose sanctions on companies involved in the project, which is nearly finished. Washington says Nord Stream 2 will make Europe more dependent on Russian gas deliveries - and will allow Russia to cut off supplies to countries like Ukraine. Biden's team has already spoken out against the project.
