US imposes a ban on Nord Stream-2

9
The Americans again spoke out against the Russian energy project "Nord Stream-2". According to the leadership of the United States, the new gas line will undermine the energy security of Europe. Russia, according to the State Department, intends to throw a “gas yoke” on the EU, in order to then be able to influence the policy of Brussels. At the same time, the opinion of Europeans themselves is not of interest to Americans.


Based on the law “On Countering America’s Opponents Through Sanctions” signed by US President Donald Trump, the Americans intend to impose sanctions restrictions on corporations that will take part in the construction of Nord Stream-2.

The objectives of the United States are very clear: to deprive our country of a large European market, which in turn will hit the national budget. But the tools used by the United States run counter not only with the norms of the WTO, but also with the norms of international ethics.

    It's cool ... and completely dependent on American LNG is, of course, not a yoke on the neck. Europe needs to think about how to get rid of the State Department dictate in all areas so that they are not obliged to buy gas from the United States at least one and a half times more expensive.

    But the tools used by the United States run counter not only to WTO standards, but also to international ethics.


    The US considers it possible to change the "rules of the game" at its discretion. What this ultimately leads to is not easy to predict. But it is entirely possible that by doing so the United States can ultimately achieve a reduction in its influence on its own allies. In the end, it is impossible for everyone and everywhere without end and edge to build various dirty tricks.

    They can push through "European partners".

    A pipe for the security of Europe is just right. But the United States wants to suppress Europe, and so that it does not enter into an alliance with Russia.

    Personal IMHO. If our party and government represented by oligarchs and others REALLY invested in modernizing the economy, and not redirected them to foreign banks (under the guise of various stabilization funds, etc.), we would have been deeply fond of this flow. And so gentlemen of minke whales hold our foundations of life in a fist. They want to turn right, they want to turn left. (they want to impose sanctions, they want grandmas for their state bonds will not pay)
