Members of the European Parliament voted in a non-binding resolution on Wednesday to condemn Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline.
The resolution was intended to assess the progress of the 2017 EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. The resolution was adopted by 433 votes to 105, with 30 abstentions, but it has no power to stop the construction of the pipeline.
Moscow said calls for blocking the project were the result of lobbying. Gazprom’s shares opened trading down by 1.6% in Moscow on Thursday.
