The US Congress supported the sanctions against the "Nord Stream-2"

79
The lower house of the US Congress unanimously adopted a resolution on countering the Nord Stream-2 project, reports RIA News.




Lawmakers called on the president to support Europe’s energy security through diversification and less dependence on Russian supplies, and also supported the introduction of sanctions aimed at not ending the construction of Nord Stream-2.

Recall that Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine actively oppose the gas project, fearing to lose revenues from the transit of Russian fuel through its territory.

The congressmen also condemned the actions of Russia in the Kerch Strait and urged it to immediately return Ukrainian ships and crews to Kiev.

The ram, shelling and capture of Ukrainian ships and crews are a violation of binding for all international norms and agreements, the resolution says.

In this regard, “we call on Russia to immediately return the detained vessels and seafarers to Ukraine”, and also to stop violating Ukraine’s sovereignty by preventing transit of Ukrainian vessels through the Kerch Strait, “as provided for by agreements and international norms,” the congressmen said.

In addition, they expressed their readiness to continue to provide the Ukrainian people with political, economic and military-technical assistance to ensure the independence of the country, democracy and prosperity. ”

Earlier, the border service of Russia reported that from April 1 to 1 of December of the current year, it checked more ships en route to Russian ports than Ukrainian ones, therefore, “there can be no talk of any blockade of Ukraine”.

    Nothing personal just business. Only then what will they drown? And for comparison, the United States, even if it is tense, the maximum will be able to supply only 12% of the necessary gas to Europe, we will leave out the price and unreliable delivery. There, gas is considered to be sold, having gone outside the factory, as it reaches the consumer, it does not bother anyone, it is evident that insurers should think. Such is the naked arithmetic for politicians.

    I read the article ... I read the comments ... And here is the most curious ... Why Europe, which loves and knows how to count money, will not send the USA? Apparently, everything suits Europe. This begs another question: who and how pays for the US Wishlist and Sanctions bribes? Am I curious in SP-2 from the original idea that there is something other than the fact that Russia should supply gas to Europe? Something I recently less and less like the topic of SP-2. What will the Russian Federation receive from the implementation of SP-2, but it is not clear when the payback period is? Friendship with Europe? So they are not friends to us! Europe is not even our partners. Europe is rather an enemy for the Russian Federation. You can certainly say that Russia needs Europe’s money, but maybe Russia will not always follow Europe in everything and instead of a rather expensive SP-2 project, without prolonging the transit contract with Ukraine for another year, it will slow down gas supplies to Europe? By the way, money from non-construction of SP-2 can be spent on paying for gas industry downtime. And after talking with Europe in a different vein ... negotiations are not with the European Union, but with individual countries and let them decide for themselves their legal diversification tricks there.

      ---------------------------
      You ask good questions. They immediately got a minus from the "patriots". SP-2 gives a good payback, there they will come out in 9 years plus. Gazprom is getting rid of Ukraine and all that kind of good stuff seems to be. There are nuances. Many shareholders are foreigners. That is, the payback will be delayed and the profit will generally go to the side. Despite the "shareholders" the money for the construction was pulled from the pension fund and right there, snuffling from the galley, they were asked to "treat with understanding." SP-2 has already been asked to cut the pumping volumes by half, as with SP-1, and now they are threatened with closure in general. In general, technically reliable transit is politically unreliable.

        So I am the same. There are so many words around SP-2 that it’s enough for every cubic millimeter of gas that passes through it during operation.
        Gazprom is getting rid of Ukraine and all that kind of good stuff seems to be.

        The trouble is that it does not untie. As I recall, Germany gave the go-ahead for the construction site only while maintaining transit through Ukraine, and Putin seemed to say bluntly that such options were being considered. And in Russian speaking, the SP-2 option exists only as an addition to the Ukrainian GTS, but it does not matter, it would be possible to pump gas in two ways, swallowing your words about the refusal of transit through Ukraine (well, this is not for us in the first), if not for one small "but"! The GTS in Ukraine requires significant maintenance costs, that is, transit is profitable only in case of large supplies, and again the question of the Russian Federation will give money to Ukraine to support the GTS or will increase the transit volume so that Ukrainians can support the Ukrainian GTS, making a profit for transit (and by the way, the question is how they dispose of the money) or when the deterioration of the Ukrainian gas transportation system reaches an accident, we will 1) repair it 2) close the SP-2 ourselves because we do not conduct gas transit through Ukraine 3) pay Ukraine let them repair their gas transportation system 4) we’ll score on transit through Ukraine (allegedly to carry out repair work or how it will be called, it does not matter) and let's hope that SP-2 will not be blocked for us and Europe will not take money from us for short deliveries through the Ukrainian GTS? SP-2 raises some questions. request

        the problem is not self-sufficiency, which you will not believe is also important, because the Soviet pipe was built dozens of years ago. and the profit still brings, the problem is that other pipes can be cut by US puppets in order to force the EU to switch to American LNG.
        and we need blood from the nose to a pipe in Germany which is not dependent on the former social. republics.

                if you buy from Russians for $ 300, what Europeans can sell for $ 600, then this is a great business.
                and the main reason is that Europe will not go to Russia on a new campaign while Europe is heated by our gas.
                that is why the states, and even though there are many gas supply routes in Europe, so that the new crusade to the east does not break down because of such a "trifle" as gas.

        Europe has already paid half the cost of SP-10 half and it is not possible to imagine if they would have blown 2 billion. 5 billion cubic meters per year will be pumped at a price of 50-200 dollars, this is 300-10 billion dollars. It turns out payback 15 year:

          they pump not free gas, but the one for which you have to pay.
          and payback is the amount of gas pumped at a certain number of kilometers at a certain price.
          since kakly get about 1.5 thousand km (I don’t know for sure) 3 lard for ~ 90 billion cubic meters.

      From the implementation of SP2, and in the future also SP3 of the Russian Federation, it will be possible to directly supply gas to customers, avoiding all gaskets and unreasonable claims from the same gaskets.

      The Russian Federation cannot "hinder" gas supplies to Europe, since Europe has been our strategic buyer of hydrocarbons for more than 30 years. There are agreements signed that must be respected if we do not want to give additional trump cards to our enemies.

      Gazprom finances only 50%, the rest - Europe (Wintershall, OMV and etc)
      As I understand it, you don’t even have theoretical knowledge of how hydrocarbons are extracted and delivered to trunk pipelines, otherwise you wouldn’t talk such nonsense about paying for the downtime of the gas industry.

        I wonder how Gazprom managed to owe laying?
        The Russian Federation cannot "hinder" gas supplies to Europe, since Europe has been our strategic buyer of hydrocarbons for more than 30 years. There are signed contracts that need to be respected,

        If you justify everything through sanctions against this strategic buyer and such a super-duper partner, then it will drive us into it because the WTO has culturally sent us with our claims for sanctions against both Europe and the USA, our media just didn’t advertise it to us.
        Gazprom finances only 50%
        I agree, but Gazprom in exchange signs contracts obliging Gazprom itself to conduct some pricing policy. And by the payback period, some questions arise.
        It can, of course, be difficult from a technical point of view to slow down the process of gas supply in trunk pipelines, but I think there is nothing feasible. It would be a desire.

          In order to "slow down the process", you have two options - to set fire to excess gas or to start killing gas wells, of which there are several hundred.

            Is there a way to put an already drowned well into operation? If so then go ahead "jam". The client is right when he paid for everything. The cost of jamming and commissioning should be included in the price tag and more.

              There are, of course, but these are high costs for killing the well and its conservation, then for the process of monitoring the conservation of the well, then also the costs for de-conservation of the well and again the costs for its development and launch into the loop. And it is not a fact that after its "jamming" it will reach its flow rate.

        From the implementation of SP2, and in the future also SP3 of the Russian Federation, it will be possible to directly supply gas to customers, avoiding all gaskets and unreasonable claims from the same gaskets.

        Yes, that's all clear. These are visible advantages. As for contracts, you yourself see how easy it is today to discredit commercial rights, and even “appeal” it in Stockholm and London.

    I read the comments and can not understand why hate the Anglo-Saxon? They chop, saw and stack loot in all available ways. But the question to the leadership of Russia, why do you call America partners? Why yesterday, with tears in their eyes, they saw off the coffin with the body of a US citizen who worked all her life for America, but our government loves and adores her. Here are the questions!

    That’s their dog thing. If the Germans and the Austrians agree to buy, and we sell, and here are the Americans. From such open boorish competition through sanctions, hatred just boils. angry

    the gas project is actively opposed by Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine

    called on the president to support energy security in Europe

    The State Department’s hand-made shafts continue to shuffle.
    What is interesting to the deputies of the United States, to the energy security of Europe?

    The absurdity of American sanctions is that they impose them because one state is building a gas pipeline to supply gas to other states, while neither the first, the second, nor the third state have any relation to America.
    About the same as Russia would impose sanctions against the United States for the construction of a highway between the United States and Canada.
    That is, from the point of view of "law", absurdity and rudeness.

    Congressmen also condemned Russia's actions in the Kerch Strait and urged it immediately

    It’s clear with the Americans, no one was expecting anything else. But these jackals
    the gas project is actively opposed by Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine
    it's time to put pressure on their capabilities (sanctions). There are still opportunities for the Baltic states and Ukraine to impose their sanctions, with the Poles the truth is a bit more complicated. Otherwise, further - more and the jackals will begin to bite their feet under Russophobian hooting.

    Our politicians need to answer the US Congress and demand that our sovereignty be respected and that the banderlogs, for starters, return us the captured Nord, otherwise we will put up for sale the ships in response!

    Do not want Russian gas as you want! But as previously planned, gas through Ukraine must be shut off otherwise the people will not understand! It seems that we were appointed enemy number one, and we feed them, sing, dress, and even help the Ukrobandera’s people against us!

    "Bodalovo" on SP-2 still has a long way to go, Germany is VERY stubborn in this matter, it smells of very serious money there. The main thing is that Merkel or the one who will instead of her be led to some kind of corruption schemes with Gazprom (as was the case with Schroeder). If, God forbid, this happens, then on SP-2 it will be necessary to put a bold cross.

    "I understand, but explain to me the current.
    There is a Putin regime, for you it is ugly,
    But against the north, what’s your stream?
    This is pure rubilovo for grandmas.

    For sales markets, and the regime is just an excuse.
    But Trump doesn’t tweet busily, -
    “The Russian Pipeline is not for us,
    With all power, your card is a bit. ”

    And in the statements, it’s as if the essence has been removed.
    That politician is bad if he’s not looking for a reason,
    But democracy has nothing to do with it guys.
