The German Constitutional Court decided not to reject the lawsuit demanding the disclosure of the names of the companies involved in the completion of the Nord Stream 2 construction. This was announced by the German Foundation "Climate and Environmental Protection MV", which tried to challenge the lawsuit filed by the publications Bild and Die Welt.
Environmental Foundation "Climate and Environment Protection MV" was established in January 2021 with the participation of Nord Stream 2 AG (operator of Nord Stream 2). The Fund, in particular, was supposed to make a "contribution to the continued construction" of the gas pipeline. Several German politicians claimed that the fund was acting in the interests of Russia and Gazprom.
“Unfortunately, the Federal Constitutional Court did not accept our complaint (regarding the lawsuit.— "b")... Now we have to name many companies from the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. These companies are not to blame for anything. They acted legally. And they trusted the parliament and government of the land, which promised protection from US sanctions. Now companies have to fear public attacks and economic hardship,” reads the statement fund.
Construction of Nord Stream 2 with a capacity of 55 billion cubic meters m completed in September 2021. The gas pipeline was not put into commercial operation, since in February 2022 the German authorities stopped its certification, and the United States imposed sanctions against the operator of the project, Nord Stream 2 AG. In February, the MV Foundation refused from project support.
In September for Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 pressure dropped sharply. Three out of four pipes of gas pipelines were damaged, gas leaks occurred there. Western countries consider occurred by sabotage. In Russia after the explosions excited case of international terrorism. In November Nord Stream admitted conduct a damage survey.
