Biden vows to shut down Nord Stream 2 if Russia invades Ukraine

“If Russia invades Ukraine, which means tanks or troops cross the Ukrainian border, again, then there will be no Nord Stream 2 pipeline,” Biden said at a news conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz at the White House.

“I promise we will put an end to it,” the US president added.

The Nord Stream 2 pipeline aims to double the gas exports of Russian energy giant Gazprom, which flow from Russia directly to Germany, bypassing the traditional route through Ukraine.
