This June 29, 2015, file image shows the start of construction of the China-Russia east-route natural gas pipeline near Heihe, China.

Construction began on the 3,968-kilometer (2,465-mile) China-Russia east-route natural gas pipeline in June 2015. The huge pipeline project is expected to be completed next year. The 2014 Ukraine crisis and the imposition of Western sanctions dramatically raised Russia's stakes in Asia.
