The US Senate voted down a bill to tighten US sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
Recall that the author of this document was Republican Senator Ted Cruz. Earlier, he stated that if the United States does not stop the launch of SP-2, then this will allegedly “untie Russia's hands”; for further aggression against Ukraine.
The number of senators who supported the initiative of Republican Ted Cruz was less than the required 60 votes, TASS reports.
Earlier, the White House criticized this bill, stressing that its adoption could drive a wedge between the US and allies in Europe.
