The certification process for the Nord Stream 2 operator may take from two to six months, said Valery Vasiliev, deputy chairman of the Federation Council’s economic policy committee.
He noted that certification is not a one-time procedure. The decision is made based on the opinions of experts.
Vasiliev also commented on the suspension of the certification process, TASS reports. According to him, this step is not politically motivated. This means that a package of documents is being transferred and their verification with German law.
