German Chancellor: It was the Right Time to Halt Nord Stream 2

BERLIN (Reuters) — The halt of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, which was supposed to bring additional gas from Russia to Germany, came at exactly the right time, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said.

Germany, which gets half its gas from Russia, had long supported the project, arguing it was primarily a commercial project to diversify energy supplies for Europe. It froze the project last month after Russia formally recognized two breakaway regions in eastern Ukraine.
