US Congress moves Nord Stream 2 sanctions bill ahead of Trump, Putin summit

The House of Representatives’ Foreign Affairs Committee approved Wednesday the Protecting European Energy Security Act, HR 3206.  The sanctions are specifically aimed at Russia’s Nord Stream 2 and Turk Stream pipelines. “By targeting the pipe-laying ships we would stop the work in its tracks, but not allow for unintended consequences of our allies in Europe,” Representative Adam Kinzinger, Republican-Illinois, said during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing Wednesday.
