The Germans were trapped by Putin: Mr Rasmussen’s opinion

82
Putin set the "gas trap" of Germany, and she fell into it. "Nord Stream 2" - a geopolitical "PR project" of the owner of the Kremlin. With the help of the “stream” Putin wants to increase his influence in Europe.




This was stated in an interview with the tabloid "Bild" Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the former Secretary General of NATO. He believes that Germany should abandon the projected gas pipeline for the sake of safety - both of its and European neighbors.

According to Rassmussen, who leads "InoTV", the expansion of the gas pipeline will lead to “serious consequences” for these very neighbors of Germany.

Putin intends to preserve Europe’s dependence on Russian gas and strengthen its influence in the EU, and at the same time deprive Ukraine of the money it receives from the transit of blue fuel through its territory. Without this money, Ukraine will not be able to turn to Europe. “And Ukraine needs this money to make a U-turn to Europe,” says Mr. Rasmussen.

Rasmussen's statement may seem rather strange to German businessmen. After all, the former Secretary General simply offered them ... to lose the money invested. Apparently, politics is above all.

If the construction of the “Nord Stream 2” in Europe is still canceled, then German companies that have invested money in the project should not be counted on to reimburse, according to the former NATO boss. “These enterprises have invested their money, perfectly aware of the risks,” he cited a weighty argument. - Concerned customers of these companies should ask another question: why should they pay for the construction of a gas pipeline that they do not need? Just to please Moscow? “Nord Stream - 1” and other gas pipelines passing through Eastern Europe are enough to satisfy Germany’s gas needs without problems. So all this is just a PR project of Putin, which they want to finance at the expense of German consumers. ” According to Mr. Rasmussen, both the gas and the “Russian influence” will flow through the pipes of this “stream”.

It turns out that we add that businessmen who have invested in the project are completely agents of the Kremlin, and also fools who serve the Russians. And on such dealers in Europe will find justice. Sorry, Rasmussen did not specify who will find.

Another thing is strange: he apparently forgot that it is an erroneous strategy to quarrel with Moscow. Still, Russia today provides 34% of Europe's gas needs. He also forgot that Germany is among the first in the list of gas consumers, and the Germans do not intend to buy American gas at a triple price, following the example of Poland.

    Everywhere they are looking for some traps ... The fact that Russia wants to freely supply gas to Europe is perceived as a threat to the independence of Europe ...! If we don’t build these gas pipelines, Europe will be in a real trap! '' in the Ukrainian trap ''! Germany understands this ... They don’t need any horses to jeopardize their well-being!

          hi Victor.
          Two mines prevail on the face of the former Ukraine: wide-open greedy eyes with a stream of saliva from the mouth and a wrinkled, crying face of the face offended by everyone and everything. The first on promises of a rich, serene, free life, and the second on "oops" - a bummer.

Hanging on Russia the repayment of Ukraine’s debts by the IMF and the EU, disguised as "404" for the welfare, is the true goal of this demarche Rasmussen.

It means being left without gas, losing money and being dependent on LNG for the Yankees, who will have no roofing felts in the future and two times more, it’s safe. But to have gas now, profit and energy independence (competition nobody canceled with LNG USA) does this mean the height of danger? Liar, and inept.

    , and at the same time deprive Ukraine of the money that it receives from the transit of blue fuel through its territory. Without this money, Ukraine will not be able to turn to Europe. “But Ukraine needs this money to make a U-turn towards Europe,” says Mr Rasmussen.


    And why should this worry Russia?


    Putin intends to maintain Europe’s dependence on Russian gas and strengthen its influence in the EU,


    And why not?
    It is beneficial for Russia to maintain Europe’s dependence. So what?

    Maybe I'm wrong, but Mr. Rasmussen seems to work as an adviser to Mr. Poroshenko. And accordingly, their work works.

    That's where our look? Semyonchenko and the company would have charged a very small amount, they would have "saddled" the pipes going through the non-fallow pipes, declared a blockade on Russian gas.
    And after that, Nord Stream -2 will begin to be built ahead of all schedules. wassat

    Putin put the "gas trap" of Germany
    And what kind of trap did Denmark set? Someone sneaky forgot that as prime minister of Denmark he secretly recorded a conversation with GDP on a dictaphone, and then made public the nature of the conversation. And this unprincipled and ugly little man is talking about "traps" and gas to Europe. Although everyone who visited the NATO Secretary General already occupying this post began to lose the last vestiges of reason.

    Without this money, Ukraine will not be able to turn to Europe. “But Ukraine needs this money to make a U-turn towards Europe,” says Mr Rasmussen.

    Brzezinski's Testament - "Against Russia, for the money of Russia, on the wreckage of Russia." They don’t even try to cover it.
    That is, we must finance the anti-Russian policy of Ukraine and revive its military power, which will be directed against the Donbass and sooner or later - against Russia.

    Putin put the "gas trap" of Germany, and she fell into it

    Yes, yes ... Of course .. And the Americans tried so hard to drive all of Europe into their trap. They didn’t drive .... Now, now, they regret that Putin did this, and sincerely condole: it would be better in their trap

    They grabbed everything from the "Englishwoman who is shitting" ... so they would immediately say - Don’t go there, the snow will hit the head! - i.e. their gas is not poisonous, oh rosiysky gas et direct poison and weapons of influence!
    Everything is just like three pennies - buy Yusov gas and don’t look at the price, it’s the right democratic gas ... and let Russia feed ukrov!

    Quote: Viktorfi
    In 1993, Russia assumed the obligations of the former Soviet republics on foreign debt. In exchange, they refused the share owed to them in foreign assets of the USSR.

    The American henchman Rasmussen simply said the other and could not otherwise remain without pay. As for Stream-2, it will no doubt be built. So that in vain all this Russophobic rabble navel tears.

      It will be built, but how efficiently the money is invested and when gas will go through it is a big question. The US strategy is to force the allies and China to endure and buy liquefied natural gas in the expectation that the regime in Moscow will soon fall. This is just a war.

    “The Germans do not intend to buy American gas at an exorbitant price following the example of Poland."...

    In addition, the Germans want to become a kind of hub mechanism that can economically and politically influence some part of Europe ...
    Well, German businessmen, as an example of ousting Siemens from the territory of Russia by a state-owned company, also had something to understand for a long time ...
