And the USA had.this to say about the completion:
"Biden has promised to impose sanctions against Russian-German Nord Stream 2 pipeline if problems arise for Ukraine"

Nord Stream 2 has finally been completed, Russia's Gazprom announces, despite US efforts to block major European gas pipeline

The final sections of the controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline have now been welded into place, Moscow’s state energy giant Gazprom has revealed, bringing construction of the underwater link between Russia and Germany to an end.
In a statement issued on Friday, Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Saint Petersburg-based energy giant, said that "at 8.45am this morning Moscow time, work on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline has been completed."

Earlier this week, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov revealed that the laying of pipes under the Baltic Sea would be "completed in a few days and (it) will begin working." Bloomberg reports that gas is expected to begin flowing through its network from the start of next month, and that final testing and preparations are underway.

According to Lavrov, efforts by the US government to halt construction through sanctions and political pressure have now failed. However, he added, "there is still a full-frontal attack, in spite of everything, on Nord Stream 2,” despite the fact “everyone knows the Americans have realized [it will be completed].”

Last month, American President Joe Biden unveiled a new package of sanctions aimed at firms involved in its construction, saying that completion of the project would increase Russia's influence in European energy markets, while weakening “Ukraine and Eastern flank NATO and EU countries.” The pipeline, the White House said, therefore threatens “the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States.”

Washington has strongly opposed the construction of Nord Stream 2, but the administration of Joe Biden has opted not to punish the German company overseeing the project while announcing sanctions against Russian companies and ships.

In July, the U.S and Germany reached a deal to allow Nord Stream 2′s completion without the imposition of U.S. sanctions on German entities.

Under the terms of the July 21 deal, the U.S. and Germany committed to countering any Russian attempt to use the Nord Stream 2 pipeline as a political weapon. And, they agreed to support Ukraine and Poland by funding alternative energy and development projects.

That's at the end of a brief report from the Associated Press.
