Nord Stream 2: Construction of disputed pipeline to restart in December

Construction on the controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline in the Baltic Sea is set to resume next week, a company spokesman said on Saturday.

Work on the pipeline was at a standstill for a year as companies working on the project pulled out under the pressure of sanctions from the United States.

The company leading the project told news agency DPA it aims to get back to work by December 5.
