(I will attach a document with an example of press statement)EU refuses to recognise US sanctions against “Nord Stream 2”HELSINKI, 12 Aug – RIA Novosti. US sanctions against Nord Stream 2 violate international law, Estonian European Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson said.Simson said the European Union does not recognise restrictive measures taken by third countries against European companies if the latter comply with EU laws and Europe determines its own energy policy.“All activities that comply with EU law and international law and which are carried out by European companies are legal. Therefore, imposing sanctions on these activities is questionable,” Simson told the German business publication Handelsblatt.The Nord Stream 2 project involves the construction of a 55 billion cubic meter per year gas pipeline from the Russian coast through the Baltic Sea to Germany. It is being implemented by Nord Stream 2 AG with sole shareholder Gazprom. The European partners – Royal Dutch Shell, OMV, Engie, Uniper and Wintershall – are together financing the project by 50 percent, i.e. up to 950 million euros each.
