U.S. House of Representatives passed the resolution, which condemns the Nord Stream 2 natural-gas pipeline, saying the undersea project will boost Russian control over Europe’s energy supplies.

The measure also urged U.S. President Donald Trump to "use all available means to support European energy security," RFE/RL reported.
The Nord Stream 2 pipeline would run under the Baltic Sea, bringing Russian gas directly to Western Europe and bypassing the existing networks running through Ukraine.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented on the resolution of the lower chamber of the U.S. Congress on the Nord Stream 2, calling it another attempt to derail a commercial project.
“We don’t consider this correct or acceptable for us," Reuters cited the spokesman as saying. "It is another attempt to prevent the implementation of a purely commercial economic project," he stressed. ■
