The project should not take place. The US came up with another reason for sanctions

68
Following the alleged US imposition of sanctions on Russia for alleged breach of the INF Treaty, the State Department announced new restrictions, this time because of the implementation of the Nord Stream-2 project. The Deputy Director of the Department of Energy Department of the United States Sandra Oudkirk during a speech in Berlin, said that Washington is going to prevent the implementation of this project, writes Spiegel.


The project should not take place. The US came up with another reason for sanctions


Oudkirk recalled that sanctions could be imposed on the project in accordance with the Law on Countering America's Opponents through Sanctions (CAATSA) adopted in August 2017 of the year in response to Russia's participation in the conflict in Ukraine and Moscow’s alleged interference in the American 2016 elections of the year .

We would be happy if the project did not take place.
- Bloomberg leads her words

Oudkirk also announced that the United States was apprehensive that Russia would install submarine reconnaissance equipment on the route of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea. According to her, Moscow can place along the new gas pipeline, which will connect Russia and Germany, certain listening devices.

She noted that this project raises concerns about security in the region and that the US opposes the project because it will increase Europe’s dependence on Russian gas supplies

At the same time, the State Department spokeswoman rejected the suggestion that the United States in this way wants to keep Europe as a potential market for supplies of American liquefied natural gas.

As alternatives to Nord Stream - 2 for Europeans, according to Oudkirk, gas can be supplied through the Caspian Sea, the Eastern Mediterranean and Algeria, and yes, the same suppliers can be from the United States or even Australia.

    They will bark, we will stretch the next gas pipeline across the entire territory of the United States from Russia directly to Cuba, and we will transport missiles to Liberty Island through it! And the trump will personally finance the project!

            Happiness is a good thing, but fleeting, but you need to fill the budget, you won’t be fed up with “happiness,” and you won’t repair schools and hospitals


            In the 90s, without money, they didn’t really want to give birth to children, although no one refused “happiness”

            And the girls, they mainly tried to measure happiness in money, and not in children

    Friendship (the oil pipeline), in fact, was a reflection of the foreign policy of the USSR in those years. Its main feature was the help to the fraternal socialist countries. In those years, they helped the “brothers” as much as they could. Often for a nominal fee or completely free of charge.

    Probably it's time to get out of all the sanctions agreements with the United States, which were introduced by UN Security Council resolutions, i.e. withdraw their signature from those decisions, and begin to trade in goods that any country under the sanctions of the Security Council will buy from us. For example, to start pumping gas in the DPRK and to provide onerous assistance in the development of rocket technologies. With Tehran, you can find common “themes” for treaties. Trump does not comply with any treaty restricting the United States, why do not we "mirror"? Let him have a couple more pains in the ass. There is no international law, it’s time to figure it out for yourself, and anyone who counts on the observance of the treaty by the United States will initially fall into a “weak” position. The USA is the main threat to peace today.
