by Biden during the press conference on February 7, 2022 where he told the world to bring Nordstream II to an end:
“PRESIDENT BIDEN: The first question first. If Germany — if Russia invades — that means tanks or troops crossing the — the border of Ukraine again — then there will be — we — there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it.
Q But how will you — how will you do that exactly, since the project and control of the project is within Germany’s control?

Meanwhile, Radoslaw Sikorski, a member of the European Parliament and a former Polish foreign minister, has thanked the US for damaging the Nord Stream pipelines. “A small thing, but so much joy,” Sikorski tweeted, adding: “Thank you, USA.”
Sikorski quoted US President Joe Biden who had threatened on February 7, before Russia began its military operation in Ukraine, that if Moscow acted against Kyiv, “there will no longer be a Nord Stream 2. We will end it”. When a reporter asked Biden to clarify, he said enigmatically: “I promise you, we’re going to make it.”

Sen. Johnson: “…Taking action that will prevent it from EVER becoming operational.”
