Wednesday, July 26, 2017

  • The bill could cause a further deterioration in US-Russian ties and weaken Trump’s ability to improve relations with Moscow.
  • Less EU-US coordination on sanctions could bring internal EU divisions to the fore.
  • Apart from Nord Stream 2, the sanctions could also affect the Blue Stream pipeline and a liquified natural gas plant in the Gulf of Finland.
