The Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project has come under fire from the United States and several eastern European, Nordic and Baltic Sea countries which fear it will increase the European Union’s reliance on Russian gas.
“This (acts of unfair U.S. competition) is unacceptable not only for us, but also for many European Union countries,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call. ■
