Novak added: "Regardless of the sanctions, the gas pipeline will be completed, and only 160 km of pipelines remain."
And this week the Russian Foreign Ministry announced that Moscow will continue to implement its economic projects, despite the sanctions imposed by Washington on the "Northern Stream 2" pipeline project, the "Turkish Stream" that transports Russian gas to Europe.
On December 20, the US Treasury announced the entry into force of sanctions on the "Northern Stream-2" and "Turkish Stream" pipelines. The United States called on companies that supply gas pipelines to stop construction immediately. The "Lasias" company, which is working on laying gas pipelines, has already suspended its operations.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump signed a defense budget for 2020 worth $ 738 billion. The budget includes measures to "confront Russia" in various fields, impose sanctions on the "North Stream-2", and military assistance to Ukraine.
The "North Stream-2" project includes building two gas pipelines, with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas annually, from the Russian coast across the Baltic Sea to Germany. The construction of the project is planned to be completed in 2019, and the gas pipeline passes through the territorial waters or exclusive economic zones of Russia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Germany.
The "Turkish Stream" gas pipeline project also includes building two major gas transportation pipelines, each with a capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters.
