As it was reported earlier, the construction of the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline was completely finished as of the morning of September 10.

On October 18, it became known earlier that the first string of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is filled with technical gas and is ready for operation.

Nord Stream 2 is the second gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea, which is due to supply gas to European countries. According to the plan, the gas pipeline should pass through the economic zones and territorial waters of five countries: Denmark (147 km), Germany (85 km), Russia (118 km ), Finland (374 km) and Sweden (510 km).
