MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin said on Thursday that the Nord Stream 2 pipeline was fulfilling all the bureaucratic requirements needed to receive a German licence and that the pipeline to Germany was ready in technical terms to go online.

Germany's energy regulator suspended the process for getting the Nord Stream 2 pipeline up and running on Tuesday, dimming hopes that it will provide any significant gas supplies to Europe in the crucial winter months.
