WWF and Germany’s Union of Environment Protection urged the leading German political figures to stop the construction of Nord Stream II. According to Der Tagesspiegel, the environment protection activists sent them a letter, comparing the pipeline with the dead end – in terms of climate and policy.  

‘It threatens the vulnerable environmental system of the Baltic Sea and drives a wedge among the EU members, their solidarity and trust,’ reads the letter.   

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.
