Olaf Scholz, the new German chancellor, said last week that Berlin could halt the project if Russia attacks Ukraine, but some observers have pointed out that he appeared noncommittal.

The country’s refusal to join other NATO members in providing weapons to Kyiv has raised concerns among allies. Ukraine criticized Germany, saying that it’s stance on arms supplies doesnot correspond to the level of our relations and the current security situation.

Scholz insisted that the pipeline is abusiness project– nothing more and nothing less, according to German outlet DW.

The Biden administration previously has held off from that level of sanctions, to avoid getting crossways with ally Germany.
