State Dept Says Kerch Incident Should Remind EU Why Nord Stream 2 'a Bad Idea'

The recent conflict between Russia and Ukraine in the Kerch Strait should serve as a reminder to European allies of the United States why the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project is a "bad idea," a senior State Department official told reporters in a press briefing on Tuesday.

"I would say the Kerch incident is a reminder that the less infrastructure you have, the less gas infrastructure you have bypassing Ukraine because of Nord Stream 2, the weaker the deterrent – deterrence is to Russian acts of military aggression," the official said in Brussels.
