NABU, a German non-governmental organization of environmentalists, requested the Greifswald Supreme Administrative Court for an interlocutory decree, which will give the opportunity to consider a complaint against the construction of Nord Stream 2 in the Greifswald Bodden, as Deutsche Welle reported.

As it is reported, NABU requested the court to make an interlocutory order against the permission for the construction of Nord Stream 2. The CEO of the organization Leif Miller said that the Nord Stream 2 company, which conducts the construction of the gas pipeline, is trying to create a fait accompli for the environmentalists and ignores the threat for the ecosystem of the bay.
