From the Document: "The Trump Administration and many Members of Congress have criticized Nord Stream 2, a Russian-owned natural gas pipeline project that would allow Germany to increase the amount of natural gas it imports directly from Russia via the Baltic Sea (see Figure 1). Although the pipeline is currently under construction, new European Union (EU) regulations agreed to in February 2019 require German and EU regulators to make a final ruling later this year on the project's compliance with EU law. Nevertheless, many observers believe the pipeline's construction will proceed."
