Censor.NET reports referring to Gazeta.ru quoting Pedro Lopez de Pablo, spokesman of MEP Manfred Weber.
As noted, Weber, leader of the European People's Party, made this proposal at the plenary session of the European Parliament on Oct. 5.
The text of his speech in German is available on the European Parliament's official website.
According to the spokesman, the European Parliament is discussing Russian sanctions as part of general political debate, while the final decision will be only adopted by the Council of the European Union at the level of foreign ministers.
Nord Stream II is a gas pipeline project intended to secure the transport of natural gas from Russia to Germany across the Baltic Sea, bypassing transit countries.
On Oct. 5, after Weber made a proposal to freeze the construction of Nord Stream II, Gerhard Schröder, former German chancellor, was appointed chairman of the project's board of directors.
