The construction of "Nord stream – 2" prevented the cod-spawning
. The pipelayers for two weeks, can't get to work on the construction of the pipeline "Nord stream — 2" for spawning cod, he told the German radio station NDR Info.
It is noted that the Danish authorities have banned any construction work until the end of September.
In this case, as the radio station, nature in this case played into the hands of politicians: July 22, U.S. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo arrived in Denmark on a visit.
During the visit he met with Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and Minister of foreign Affairs Jeppe Kofod. The Secretary of state stressed that the US would actively defend their geopolitical interests.
Washington opposes the project, since trying to impose Europe deliveries of its liquefied natural gas. In December, the United States adopted the defense budget, involving sanctions against companies involved in the gas pipeline, from-for what from the works of the Swiss Allseas refused.
In response the Russian side expressed the ability to complete the construction efforts of the laying vessel "Academician Chersky", which arrived in the German port of Mukran in may.
However, since the work is carried out in an area where during the Second world war have flooded many mines and ammunition, the Russian ships required special permission, since the work on them is impossible without at anchor. In early July, the Danish government was allowed to complete the project ships with the anchor positioning.
Thus on 23 July, the U.S. Senate approved the defense budget for next year. It provides for the introduction of new sanctions against the "Nord stream — 2". Existing restrictions apply to organizations that work on laying the pipes, and involved insurance companies.
