Moscow [Russia], December 21 (ANI/Sputnik): The Kremlin sees US sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, expected to pump gas from Russia to Europe, as a sign of a hybrid war, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday.

Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska has recently said that "sanctions are a tool of a very real modern hybrid war."

"We definitely can agree with Deripaska that these restrictions ... are in fact a kind of a hybrid war," Peskov told reporters when asked about Kremlin's opinion on the billionaire's statement.

The best response to these restrictions on the gas pipeline project will be its completion, the spokesman said. (ANI/Sputnik)
