EXPLAINER: What’s Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline to Europe?

AP Business Writer

The pipeline would double capacity to bring gas straight to Germany from Russia once it gets European approval. Biden says that if Russia invades, “we will bring an end to it.” But German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has been less definite in his statements. Europe’s shortage of natural gas this winter has helped put Russian gas supplies front and center in tensions between Moscow and NATO allies.
