<div> <p><span class="caps">VIENNA</span> – A package of sanctions prepared by the European Union in case Russia invades Ukraine includes measures targeting the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline connecting Russia to Germany, Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer said on Monday.</p> <p>“Certification (of the pipeline) would then be stopped (if Russia invaded). There is no question about that. That therefore means that Nord Stream 2 is part of the sanctions,” Nehammer told a news conference.</p> <p>The pipeline has been built but is not yet operational as it is awaiting German and EU regulatory approval.</p> <p/> </div>
