Vladimir Putin Claims Russia Is Not Using Gas As A Weapon Amid Europe���s Energy Crisis

However, the pipeline bypasses both Poland and Ukraine by running through the Baltic Ocean, which many believe is a threat to the national interests of both countries.

The Russian President has faced intense backlash over the project, with claims he has "weaponised" the flow of gas into Europe for political gain.

Earlier this week, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken warned Moscow against playing politics with Europe's energy sector.

He told reporters the US is monitoring the situation "very carefully", adding: "Should Russia attempt to use energy as a weapon or commit further aggressive acts against Ukraine, we are committed and Germany is committed to taking appropriate action."
