Merkel rules out retaliation after U.S. sanctions Russian gas pipelineBERLIN/FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday Germany would not retaliate against a decision by the United States to impose sanctions on companies building the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. The U.S. Senate on Tuesday passed legislation to impose sanctions on firms constructing the underwater pipeline to bring Russian natural gas to Germany. The Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which is backed by Russia’s Gazprom, would allow Russia to bypass Poland and Ukraine to deliver gas under the Baltic Sea to Germany.
