Biden orders new sanctions against Russian-German pipeline as Merkel meets Putin in Moscow

US President Joe Biden is ordering his government to place additional sanctions against Nord Stream 2, even as Russian and German leaders are meeting in Moscow ahead of the gas pipeline’s completion.

In a letter to Congress sent on Friday, Biden argued that “certain Russian energy pipeline projects” would expand Moscow’s influence over EU energy resources and weaken “Ukraine and Eastern flank NATO and EU countries,” thereby threatening “the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States.”
