Russia: Nord Stream 2 Pipe-Laying Ship Reaches Baltic. The Russian pipe-laying vessel Akademik Cherskiy on Sunday was reported to be on the way to the Kaliningrad region to complete construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany. The project is more than 90 percent complete with about 100 miles of pipeline remaining to be laid along the Baltic Sea near Denmark. President Vladimir Putin earlier this year said that he expected Nord Stream 2 to be completed by the beginning of 2021. Bloomberg Reuters RFE/RL
