Democratic senators think about sanctions on Nord Stream 2


The Hill reports that the White House is asking Democrats in the US Senate to oppose defense budget amendments that include sanctions against Nord Stream 2.

At the same time, the Democrats are in no hurry to vote – they are trying to create procedural difficulties. Republicans believe that in this way the senators from the Democratic Party are trying to avoid making a difficult decision for themselves.

This is due to the fact that the Democrats used to openly oppose Nord Stream 2, but with the arrival of Joe Biden, their policy has changed : they believe that tough sanctions would be unnecessary in this matter.
