NRPLUS MEMBER ARTICLE P resident Biden’s refusal to stand in the way of Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline has earned him rebukes from America’s Eastern European allies and members of Congress on both sides of the aisle. Biden and his team agree with the critics’ central objection — that it’s a malign influence project that will increase the Kremlin’s leverage over its neighbors. But they argue that imposing tough sanctions on the pipeline, which runs over 750 miles under the Baltic Sea to Germany, would anger Berlin.
