Owned by a company based in Switzerland and controlled by Russia's Gazprom monopoly, it will follow the same route as Nord Stream I, launched in 2011, which brings gas from Russian Federation to Germany.

Earlier this year, Germany approved the construction of a Russian gas pipeline called Nord Stream 2, which was supposed to expand on an existing pipeline under the Baltic Sea.

"Regular maintenance is necessary to operate the Nord Stream twin pipeline safely, efficiently and reliably".

The consortium behind Nord Stream 2 says it expects the project to go online next year, though it has encountered strong resistance at the European Union level. Canada has been explicit in their worldwide communications with many countries. Germany is a rich country.

Buechele also said that to claim Russian Federation would be able to control gas markets was "factually wrong and politically absurd".
