US sanctions on Nord Stream 2 bringing Russia & Europe closer together – economy minister

One of the leading figures in charge of Russia’s economy, Economic Development Minister Maxim Oreshkin, sat down with RT correspondent Ilya Petrenko to discuss a wide range of economic issues. During the exclusive interview, the minister talked about the extraterritorial sanctions imposed by the US particularly against pipeline Nord Stream 2.

According to him, cooperation between Russia and Europe is growing, and pressure from the US just gives more impetus for further development of those ties.
