VLadimir Putin wanted it. Russians and Germans have done it. The Nord Stream 2 project, this new gas pipeline under the Baltic to supply Europe with Russian gas but an old subject of tension between Washington and Moscow, is about to be completed. The last section was laid at the bottom of the sea. After many delays since the start of work in April 2018, the inauguration of this project of 10 billion euros for an annual capacity of 55 billion m3, orchestrated by the Russian giant Gazprom, is expected to intervene by the end of the year. No doubt in the presence of the head of the Kremlin and… Angela Merkel.
