Blog 2: Russia

The article I will be writing about was found on BBC News, it is called "Nord Stream 2: Germany and Russia decry US sanctions"

Russia and the EU are angry with the US because they say that they should be allowed to make decisions on their own without the US telling them what they can and can't do. Russia and Germany want to build a pipeline between the two countries but the US isn't for it because they're worried about security risks. The US also thinks if the pipeline was to happen it would tighten Russians grip over Europe's energy supply and reduce it's own share of Europes great deal of natural gas.

Geographic aspects in the story take place in Germany and Russia, and the following countries that the pipeline would be going through. Many people already believe the pipeline will cause harm to the the environment and are against it being built.
