Environmental lawyers in push to stop gas pipeline in Finland

German-Russian pipeline takes shape despite US protests

For this, the US President promised Berlin to start a discussion on a new "trade deal" between the US and the EU.

However, she added that Washington was focused on using diplomatic means to halt Nord Stream 2, one of several Russian projects to export gas to western Europe via routes avoiding Ukraine, with which Moscow is involved in a series of disputes.

The U.S. president in March imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum imports but gave European Union countries until June 1 to negotiate new deals with the U.S.

Early last month, before the Merkel was on an official visit to come to the United States of America, it became known that one of the key topics of the talks will be "Nord stream 2".

In addition, US intelligence is concerned about the construction of the pipeline "Nord stream-2" from the Russian Federation to Germany, as it would allow Russian security services to accommodate the new technologies of listening and monitoring in the Baltic sea.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said today (10 April) that plans for a controversial second underwater pipeline to bring gas from Russian Federation could not go forward without Ukrainian involvement in overland transit. In addition, the foreign Ministry explained why the "Nord stream-2" favorable to Germany. The length of the pipeline will be 1.2 thousand km, and the total capacity of the existing Nord stream - 55 billion cubic meters of gas.

Oudkirk said the project raises security concerns because it would divert gas flows away from Ukraine, which depends heavily on transit fees, and could become a pathway for Russian Federation to install high-tech monitoring and listening equipment in the Baltic Sea, a sensitive military region.

Mr Whittingdale said: "Does he share the widespread concern about the proposed Russian gas pipe line Nord Stream 2".

A consortium of western companies and Russia's Gazprom that is due to build the controversial subsea Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany said on Tuesday it was starting preparatory work in the Greifswald bay off Germany's Baltic coast. In this regard, Russian Federation was forced to develop an alternative route around the country.
