MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian gas giant Gazprom still plans to start its Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany at the end of 2020 or in early 2021, the RIA news agency reported, citing a senior executive at the company.

U.S. senators this month announced a bill expanding sanctions on the project, which Washington says will boost Moscow’s economic and political influence in Germany and other European countries.
