WASHINGTON, Dec 12 – RIA News. The House of Representatives of the United States Congress unanimously adopted a resolution on countering the "Nord Stream – 2", the House said in Twitter.

The document calls on the president to support European energy security through diversification and less dependence on supplies from Russia, and also supports the introduction of sanctions in the Nord Stream-2 issue.

The Nord Stream-2 project envisages the construction of two gas pipeline lines with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year from the coast of Russia through the Baltic Sea to Germany.

Ukraine is actively opposed to the project, fearing the loss of revenues from the transit of Russian gas, a number of European countries, including Poland, Latvia and Lithuania, as well as the United States, promoting their own liquefied natural gas to the EU. They call the project political and threatening the energy security of Europe.

Moscow has repeatedly stated that the project is completely commercial and competitive, and indicated that it does not imply stopping the transit of Russian gas to the EU through Ukraine.
