"The United States will impose sanctions unless related parties immediately demonstrate good faith efforts to wind-down. Related parties need to finish wind-down within 30 days. Any company involved in Nord Stream 2 needs to look carefully at what that means for their operations," the U.S. Department of State said in a fact sheet on U.S. opposition to Nord Stream 2.

According to the U.S., Nord Stream 2 is a tool Russia is using to support its continued aggression against Ukraine.
