Nord Stream 2 Completion by 2025

Question

Nord Stream 2 is a gas pipline connecting Russia and Germany. Importantly, it will bypass Ukraine, with whom Russia has had troubled relations in the recent past. Germany has been repeatedly pressured to stop the Nord Stream 2 project, both by the US and most recently in light of the attempted assassination of Russian dissident Alexei Navalny. Nonetheless, Germany has insisted that the project is purely economic and will go forward.

Will Nord Stream 2 be completed (before 2025)?

The question resolves positive if Nord Stream 2 is completed and makes at least one commercial delivery of natural gas. It resolves negative if this event does not occur by January 1, 2025. Or if the project is declared abandoned, canceled, destroyed or is unlikely to be completed in the near future for another reason.

The question resolves ambiguously if Vladimir Putin ceases to be president of Russia.
