MOSCOW, March 12. /TASS/. Washington’s attitude towards the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project is comparable to "asset-grabbing" on an international scale, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.

He was commenting on publications in various media outlets that the US was putting together more sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project.

"The US’s hostile and non-competitive attitude to this purely economic project is well known, this is not new. We are aware that we are dealing with attempts at unfair competition, and sometimes with actions comparable to assets grabbing, but on an international level," Peskov noted.

The Kremlin spokesman stressed that Moscow considers this approach to be "unacceptable."

"The competitiveness of particular projects should be proven in practice through their benefits in terms of supply and demand," he added.

In this case, he said, the competitiveness of Russian gas, which will flow along this route, is 100%.

Peskov assumed that "Washington might have to think about how it is going to make its customers in Europe buy gas, which is by dozens of percents more expensive than gas."
