The construction of Nord Stream 2 could harm the global environmental situation. This opinion was shared by former Assistant Assistant Secretary of Defense Debra Kagan.
This is reported by the NPF, referring to “Voice of America”.
Former Assistant Assistant Secretary of Defense Debra Kagan shared her expert opinion on the risks posed by the construction of the Nord Stream-2 pipeline under the Baltic Sea. According to Kagan, the construction of the Nord Stream-2 pipeline can seriously damage the ecological system of the Baltic Sea and the environmental situation in the world.
The former official noted that the Russian Federation was in a hurry to complete the pipeline, despite the sanctions. According to her, such precipitation can have very serious consequences.
At the same time, Kagan stressed that the Russian Federation ignores the rules established by Denmark. According to her, the Russian Federation wishes to use a ship anchored in the construction of the pipeline. According to the American politician, a ship can thus damage the ecosystem of the lower anchor of the Baltic Sea. But these are far from all the risks. Debra Kagan recalled that shells have been on the bottom of the Baltic Sea since the Second World War. According to Kagan, during construction, the ship’s anchor can touch these shells.
Finally, Kagan noted that Nord Stream-2 is an economically disadvantageous project for Russia.
