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.

Mr Perry told a briefing on a visit to Kiev for the inauguration of President Mr Volodymyr Zelenskiy "The opposition to Nord Stream 2 is still very much alive and well in the United States.

The United States Senate is going to pass a bill, the House is going to approve it, and it's going to go to the President and he's going to sign it, that is going to put sanctions on Nord Stream 2."
