Federal armed forces oppose Nord Stream 2 route near German coast

Die Welt

Germany’s federal armed forces are among the critics of the Russian-German natural gas pipeline project Nord Stream 2, and call for the pipeline to be built along a different route than planned, writes Alan Posener in Die Welt. According to current plans, the new pipeline would run next to the existing Nord Stream pipeline, which crosses a military training area. Posener’s article also lists the project’s “powerful friends” and critics, and lays out the arguments for and against it.
