Russia’s leading energy enterprise Gazprom and its partners are ready to start the implementation of the project in April 2018. The 1,200-kilometers-long pipeline is to be laid through the Baltic Sea, linking Russia and Germany – bypassing Ukraine, Poland, and the Baltic States. The capacity will be twice larger than that of Nord Stream I. The construction is to be complete by late 2019.

Ukraine, certain EU countries, and the U.S. oppose the construction of Nord Stream II, saying the very initiative threatens the EU's energy independence.
