Russia could change the pipeline's route to avoid obstacles
The highly controversial Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline planned to reach Germany via the North Sea may hit new obstacles, which are able to further slow down or even halt the project, news wires reported. Last Thursday, Danish parliament was to discuss a new law, which could make it possible to block pipelines that run through Danish territorial waters on security concerns. Currently, only environmental concerns are taken into account. The bill is almost sure to pass as it is backed both by the government and by the main opposition parties.
