President Biden has now officially unleashed sanctions against Russia’s Nordstream 2 pipeline, which carries gas between Russian and Germany via the north sea.

As The Hill reports:


Biden said in a statement that his administration would put sanctions on Nord Stream 2 AG, the parent company of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, and its corporate officers.

His action follows Russia’s incursion into Ukraine. The president described the move as part of “initial” actions related to Russia’s actions, and warned that it could go further in the future.

“These steps are another piece of our initial tranche of sanctions in response to Russia’s actions in Ukraine. As I have made clear, we will not hesitate to take further steps if Russia continues to escalate,” he said.

Last year, the Biden administration waived sanctions on the pipeline — generating pushback from Democrats and Republicans alike who said it should take a harder line on Russia.

Biden’s move has along been sought by many of the more hawkish members of Congress, including Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R).

He lifted the sanctions in the first place, therefore he allowed Russia to finance this war.
