Is that EU ?
alternative goes throught Baltic states ... "aliance" with Russia is closer and closer
Nord Stream's offshore route is unnecessarily expensive, environmentally dangerous and represents an opportunity for the EU to defend its ground against Russia, writes Robert Amsterdam

Yet the Nord Stream consortium appears to leave regulators without a choice of where the pipeline will be laid because it does not highlight this obvious alternative

Paulauskas, who recently took the position, expressed fears that the planned construction of the pipeline on the sea bottom could move the World War II-era weapons buried in the seabed, thus jeopardizing the mariti ...
