President Joe Biden hit the Russian company that built the controversial Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline from Russia to Germany with sanctions, a day after Germany blocked the pipeline’s certification because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, APA reports quoting Politico.

“These steps are another piece of our initial tranche of sanctions in response to Russia’s actions in Ukraine. As I have made clear, we will not hesitate to take further steps if Russia continues to escalate,” Biden said in a statement.
