The 1,230-kilometre Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline being laid between Russia and Germany is causing major concern for the U.S. and some European countries. Germany is looking to access a low-cost gas supply from Russia, but the U.S., Ukraine, Poland, and Slovakia maintain the project will give too much leverage to Russia.
