The US Congress decided to block the construction of "SP-2" through the military budget

The US Congress decided to block the construction of "SP-2" through the military budget

The US Congress has come up with a new way to impose sanctions against Nord Stream-2. Congressmen are proposing to include them in the country's defense budget for the 2020 year. This was stated by the head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Jim Risch, according to Defense News.


According to the senator, the United States imposes sanctions against companies involved in the construction of the pipeline. The restrictions introduced were included in the draft law "On National Defense for the 2020 Year". He expressed the opinion that the imposed sanctions will force construction companies to "abandon the project," since "it will cost them dearly."

The reason for this step is because the window of opportunity closes. Most of the Nord Stream has already been built. If sanctions are included in the US defense budget, companies involved in the construction of Nord Stream-2 will close, and Russia will have to look for other contractors

- said Rish.

At the same time, he admitted that there is still no final agreement on the bill, they are trying to resolve the existing disagreements in the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Recall that at the end of July, the US Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs voted to pass a bill on sanctions against the Russian gas pipeline. The sanctions impose a ban on entry into the United States and freezing of assets located in the United States of persons involved in the "sale, lease, provision or assistance in providing" ships for laying Russian pipelines at sea at a depth of 30 meters. This bill has not yet entered into force, as it has not yet been approved by the House of Representatives and the US Senate, and also has not been signed by Trump.

      It would not hurt to drop a bomb on the congress building with a full quorum, but it’s not a task again to recruit there the same degenerates of the human race.

            They no longer know how to sanction sanctions normally; they will soon be sentenced to death in absentia.

              All this only says that American banks wanted to spit on the sovereignty of deposits of foreign investors.

              During WWII, Britain prudently transferred its gold reserves and money to US banks - so to speak, away from the possible seizure of their Nazis. But when the United States decided to open a second front, and Britain didn’t think about opening it, it was the American Banks that refused to return its money and its gold reserves to Britain until it opens a second front.
              Churchill did not just have a heart attack from this, but a real heart attack.

              And here the USA easily steers — manages — the contributions of some firms there!

              And still someone - in the same Russian Federation - considers their investments in American banks to be safe from any kind of robbery in the form of "sanctioned" "frosts" and "arrests"! fool

          Congress, sanctions, nonsense. Whether the sanctions themselves were built would be insensitive, but foreign companies are building, they can put pressure on them. The trouble is that we have no one to build, only to saw.

            You still do not understand the main thing!
            It’s about how to take a loan for a neighbor, cash it out, give it a tithe and forget it.
            And if you built it yourself - all the credit would hang on you.
            So very smart!
            Incidentally, the investment in the project is also foreign. Putin once told Grandma Merkel that if German companies do not want to be investors, then Russia itself will build, for its money.
            But who will refuse such a jackpot))
            Now let them understand with their hegemon.
            It will be necessary - we will finish it ourselves, all the more there is everything left ...

          Such garbage all over the world. The people hate government officials, presidents, ministers, deputies - and almost no one understands that the president has no authority, he is just the host of a television show. And the producers and the owner of the "TV channel" are always behind the scenes, and even do not always write to the credits.

              The problem is not the WTO, but the fact that the Americans do not comply with the rules of the WTO

              No need to blame those who are not to blame

              We needed the WTO, there was a significant economic growth,
              Yes, it turned out that
              the "gentlemen" needed something else.

              Live and learn

              Although, if you look, gentlemen have always thrown us, both under the king and after.

              But we thought that they were against communism, and we are no longer a communist country.

              But now no one believes, neither liberals nor any Westerners.

            But it was he who started the process of "integration" into the "capitalist" system of "values", it was with him that the Soviet Union began to cherish everything, sweets, lemonade, seasonings, labels, petty, it began to switch to clothes, music, films, technology and it was not the capitalists who cut it vineyards, these were the steps of Gorby. He sowed and they just began to ruin our industry, and then they bought it for next to nothing, vouchers.

            The WTO is already the whole world, it’s stupid not to enter it and it’s stupid to go out because all other countries will simply impose increased import duties on all goods from Russia upon our exit - the WTO member countries are marked in green The EU is also indicated in blue in the WTO in blue

            They entered under Medvedev six months before the end of his presidency with the assistance of Obama, who, for the sake of such vileness, even took on the function of "persuading" Georgia that it would not block Russia’s entry again. In short, DAM and Obama were in a tight tandem in a hurry stumbling over to “enter” the Russian Federation into the WTO until the end of DAM’s authority, apparently mindful of the words “prime minister” of the GDP which (literally but somehow) said: “We have been fulfilling all conditions for 15 years to enter to this organization. Well, if they don’t want to see us in the WTO, then maybe we don’t need to go there? " But now it’s not about the WTO, but about the SP-2 which the mattresses want to block in any way. I’m thinking, maybe Russia should play on this ?, just like they kicked out the cards from the European Commission that used Bulgaria’s vagaries against Russia. Then they just said, we are curtailing the project, let the Bulgarians go through the forest. The EU and Bulgaria were in shock, because they were ready to play this disc for a very long time, but it all ended so unexpectedly. Ukraine is slowing down with the new conclusion of a pumping contract, the SP-2 has stalled by the efforts of its “partners” and commissioning instead of December 2019 is postponed until the summer of 2020. At the same time, from December 2019, the Turkish Stream (already filled with gas) and the Power of Siberia to China (filled with gas) will be commissioned, which, in large part, will help cover the losses from stopping transit to Europe through Ukraine. Maybe it’s just worth it to "meet" and stop pumping gas, in order to give the mattresses the opportunity to prove themselves "in all its glory" so that they could try to replace the fallen volume of Russian pipeline gas with a few feeble gas carriers? Europeans stupidly ask them - Well And ????

      They do not call it stink, but the promotion of their business! They need to promote their projects, but it turns out Russia is dumping gas prices. But they cannot sell their gas cheaper. Otherwise they will fly into the pipe. What is their challenge? Remove the competitor and impose your gas. Another option is to become a reseller of Russian gas, which they tried to do in Ukraine. If we (the USA) block gas to Europe, then Russia will be forced to either refuse to sell gas to Europe or sell it to us, and we will already resell and have a share. This did not work with Ukraine. Although Russia has made Turkey an intermediary in the sale of gas. It is clear that this also concerned the Russia-Turkey-Syria issue. And what is the United States doing now? To impose sanctions also against Turkey? But what about gas that will not be taxed by the United States and go to Europe? It is clear that the states want to either make a profit or deprive it of a competitor. Given that the construction is at our expense, and not at the expense of consumers, it is quite logical to drive Russia into spending that will then be frozen and Russia will incur huge losses. So their attic does not flow far. Everything is very logical from a business point of view. hi

    According to the senator, the United States imposes sanctions against companies involved in the construction of the pipeline. The restrictions introduced were included in the draft law "On National Defense for 2020". He expressed the opinion that the imposed sanctions will force construction companies to "abandon the project," since "it will cost them dearly."

    That is how the economic parity of the United States in front of the whole world is achieved ...
    Let us continue to tell tales about the benefits of just such a development ...
    Unrequited love tolerance towards partners can lead to economic troubles ... And why doesn’t anyone say that at the present stage of Russia it is capable of building up the SP-2 in splendid isolation? And more sanction - less sanction - is not so important ...

      This seems called a death hug! When a competitor is put two conditions or give two options. We will either beat you to death or love you. To beat us did not work. But some of our leaders fell in love. Just do not take into account the consequences of this love.
      That is how the US achieves economic parity over the whole world.

      Two news -1) Oceanic completed submarine research work south of the Danish island of Bornholm. along the future Nord Stream 2 route. 2) in the German port of Mukran, there is the Russian pipe-laying machine Fortuna, which laid SP-2 in Russian ter. waters, the depths of Denmark allow her to make styling .... I hope that this is a backup option, but there are chances ....

    News dated October 30, 2019 from the site nord-stream2.com:
    Denmark issued building permit for Nord Stream 2

    Approved route 147 km southeast of the island of Bornholm in the exclusive economic zone of Denmark.

    October 30, 2019 | Copenhagen, Denmark | Today, Nord Stream 2 AG has received permission to build the new Nord Stream-2 offshore gas pipeline in the Danish Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) southeast of Bornholm Island. The building permit was issued by the Danish Energy Agency and covers a section of the pipeline route with a length of 147 kilometers.

    “We are pleased to have received Danish consent for the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas trunkline on the Baltic Sea continental shelf southeast of Bornholm Island. We will continue constructive cooperation with the Danish authorities to successfully complete the construction of the gas pipeline, ”said Samira Kiefer Andersson, permit manager in Denmark for Nord Stream 2 AG.

    Preparatory work, such as the installation of protective concrete pads and a stone skid at the intersection with existing infrastructure (cables and gas pipelines), as well as pipe laying, will begin in the coming weeks. Pipes from the logistics terminal in Mukran on the German island of Rügen will be used to build the Danish section.

    To date, more than 2100 km of two pipelines have already been laid. The pipe-laying was completed in the waters of Russia, Finland and Sweden, as well as mostly in the waters of Germany. Work on both coastal areas is nearing completion.

    The Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline will ensure reliable and safe gas supplies to Europe. Thanks to direct access to a competitively priced gas source, European consumers will save billions of euros, according to a study by the University of Cologne (EWI) (source: https://www.ewi.uni-koeln.de/cms/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/EWI-1163-17-Studie-Impacts-of-Nord-Stream-2-web.compressed.pdf) Nord Stream 2 has invested over 6 billion euros in the project. More than 1000 companies from 25 countries of the world are involved in design work. It is an incentive for economic growth and job creation in Europe.

    A source: https://www.nord-stream2.com/ru/dlia-pressy/novosti-i-meropriiatiia/daniia-vydala-razreshenie-na-stroitelstvo-severnogo-potoka-2-139/
    The United States is simply physically unable to influence the completion of the Nord Stream 2 construction. They had absolutely no time left for "sanctions-entrepreneurial" activities to stop this project.

    Woke up)) In those 2 months that are required for the completion of the SP-2 with their bureaucracy, they are unlikely to have time to push through the bill. And even if they drag it, it will be cheaper for companies involved in construction to finish building the gas pipeline than to interrupt construction, and then to pay forfeits and fines.

    I think Russia needs to take a retaliatory step, only think through everything carefully so as not to do more harm to itself.

    As a response, you can deny access to some American goods on our market.

    For example, Procter & Gembel products - in fact, this is a large part of our market for household chemicals (washing powders starting from MIF ending with Ariel) and hygiene products (starting from Razor Vest, etc.)

    Firstly, we have our own companies, such as Nevsky Cosmetics, which also makes toothpastes and shampoos and clear the market for them from the dominance of American goods, and secondly, the market is free for European suppliers and thus compensates them for US sanctions proceeds.

    Just imagine how many products are bought in Russia every month in the form of washing powders, shampoos, toothpaste, razors, etc. and all this is delivered to our market by the American company Procter and Gembel, that is, all that we spend on this is leaving the US economy !!!

    This is tens of billions of dollars monthly going to the USA !!!

        But did this office in Russia not open its production facilities?


        Its production in Russia consists in the packaging of concentrate in packs. Yes, they create a certain number of jobs for us, but for this they seized a large part of our market and most of the proceeds from the sale of Procter & Gambel goods in our market go west.


        The same as with the assembly of imported cars. In Russia, only body welding and assembly, and all units where a large part of the profit is laid, come from abroad.

        Such productions simply allow import companies not to pay a duty when delivering goods to Russia, they simply import it in parts, collecting / packing in Russia.


        We need to lock our economy for the most part to our production in Russia, a significant part of the goods that our citizens consume must be locally produced and produced by local companies, the only way we can develop the economy !!!

        And if you do as pseudo liberals are now offering - distributing gold and foreign currency reserves through a short-term increase in pensions, salaries and subsidies to state employees, there will simply be a jump in import consumption, and through this all our money and reserves will flow abroad, and when there is no money left in the country, as well as resources, we will turn into a semblance of modern Afghanistan, but it will also be cold with us, since we simply will have nothing to heat our cities with.

    I’m wondering if the Yankees are really so stupid, or is it someone from outside who promotes all these bans from the Senate’s talking heads? The first result was from the very first sanctions, not a blow to our companies and so on, but a drop in confidence in US financial institutions. for years he tried unsuccessfully to somehow influence the economy of the enemy, the Yankees themselves did this in less than half a year. Further more, freezing of assets. This is generally something with something. In the open for the whole world to say, "we are at any time can rob you "(translation from diplomatic into Russian obscene), this is the height of idiocy. The result, the main holders of government bonds and US dollar assets began to get rid of them, converting assets into gold, euros, yuan and rubles. And this is just what lies on the surface , just read the press carefully without paying attention to propaganda and slogans. One gets the impression that someone waved his hand at America and now gets rid of the tool that has not justified itself.
    PS: If at least a little thinking people remain in the United States, new sanctions will be taken in a greatly reduced form, or they will be cut off altogether. Everyone understands that Gazprom will complete the SP-2, even alone, in any situation.

        Goazdo is more than we are told about this. And the real price of the ruble is much higher. It is purposefully omitted, the expensive ruble is not profitable for the state. I will not prove anything, it’s enough to see what happens with production in countries with expensive national currency.

      Uranium tails are the fuel of the future. And not so far. There is already a bickering behind them. So far, it’s quiet, without outright violence, but the trouble has begun. And only three countries own the processing technologies: Russia, the USA and France. With the launch of serial production of closed fuel cycle reactors, prices for such "waste" will become sky-high.
