WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released a new video about the dangers of Russian President Vladimir Putin's natural gas pipeline, Nord Stream 2, which is expected to be completed by January 2020.

In the video, he warned:

"Nord Stream 2, if completed, would help Russia. It would strengthen Putin. It would generate billions of dollars that could be used to fuel Russian aggression."

Urging Congress and the administration to act swiftly to stop the pipeline, Sen. Cruz said:

"We have just two months to get it done, and if we fail to get it done, we will have vastly strengthened Putin's hands at the expense of the rest of the free world. I introduced bipartisan legislation to stop Nord Stream 2. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed it with overwhelming bipartisan support by a vote of 20 to 2. Time is running out for the United States to act."
