The foreign Ministry responded to the US threats, "Nord stream — 2"

The official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, commenting on the spread of American sanctions on the "Nord stream 2" and "Turkish stream 2", called this use of political pressure for unscrupulous competition.

The US state Department has published recommendations in the framework of the law on counteraction to Russia through sanctions, including the document "Nord stream 2" and the second line of the "Turkish stream 2," said U.S. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo on Wednesday.

"This use of political pressure to unscrupulous competition," Zakharova told RIA Novosti, commenting on the situation.

She added that it is "an indicator of the weakness of the American system".

"In addition to security techniques, effective tools, no",- concluded the official representative of the foreign Ministry.
