A group of US senators from the Republican and Democratic parties to the number of 39 people sent a letter to US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan, in which they opposed the construction of the Nord Stream 2 project, Rambler News reports on Friday.
The letter is published on the official website of Wyoming Senator John Barrasso. The senators have expressed their fears in connection with a developing project of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline which is intended to ensure the supply of natural gas from Russia to Germany. They have called on the US administration to use all available tools to prevent the pipeline's construction.
The senators have noted that Nord Stream 2 will make US allies and partners in Europe more vulnerable to “pressure and malignant influence” on the part of Russia.
