From the Document: "I hereby report that I have issued an Executive Order in order to take additional steps regarding certain Russian energy export pipelines to deal with the national emergency declared in Executive Order 14024 of April 15, 2021, with respect to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States posed by specified harmful foreign activities of the Government of the Russian Federation. The order responds to certain Russian energy pipeline projects intended to expand Russia's influence over Europe's energy resources that would weaken European energy security--including that of Ukraine and Eastern flank NATO and EU countries--and thereby threatens the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States. The order blocks the property and interests in property of foreign persons identified by the Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury, in a report to the Congress pursuant to the Protecting Europe's Energy Security Act of 2019 [...] as amended by section 1242 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 [...] for engaging in certain activities or providing certain services to facilitate construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project, among others."
