US GUIDANCE BROADENS SANCTIONS TO THWART COMPLETION OF NORDSTREAM 2 RUSSIAN GAS PIPELINE

On 21 October, KYC 360 reported that the US State Department has broadened the scope of its sanctions targeting the unfinished Russian-backed natural-gas pipeline with new guidance published on its website.  These expand on upon last year’s measures, saying sanctions would apply to companies providing services, facilities or funding for “upgrades or installation of equipment” for vessels that would work on Nord Stream 2 saying that it wants to make sure that all parties have clarity that they could fall under the sanctions.
