Did Biden just sacrifice Poland for the sake of good relations with Germany?


 According to information from Der Spiegel and Fox Business, there will be no sanctions over Nord Stream 2 (NS2) for the time being.

"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is analyzing information about the intention of the US administration to resign from imposing sanctions on companies building the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline," said Poland's Deputy Foreign Minister Szymon Szynkowski vel Sęk.

According to Der Spiegel, the German government is aware of Washington's decision. The withdrawal from severe sanctions, as first reported by the US news portal Axios, is a sign of a concession from Biden, who is a staunch opponent of the pipeline and is under enormous political pressure over the project.

There is no official reaction from the Polish government yet, but it may be a severe political and economic blow.
