US ambassador: sanctions against gas pipelines adopted in the interests of the European Union

US sanctions imposed against the Russian gas pipeline Nord Stream-2 were adopted in the interests of the European Union. This statement was made by US Ambassador to Berlin Richard Grenell in an interview with Bild.

Answering questions from German journalists, Grenell said that the sanctions imposed against the Nord Stream 2 pipeline were adopted solely in the interests of the EU, and many European countries have already thanked Washington for their introduction.



Seriously: 15 European countries, the European Commission and the European Parliament all expressed their concerns about the project. We have long heard from our European partners that the United States must support their efforts. Therefore, sanctions are a very pro-European decision.

- he said.

Grenell explained that Germany is demanding that the United States "do more for Europe," and the United States, fulfilling Germany’s demand, imposed sanctions against Nord Stream-2, thereby "taking a pro-European position."

Germany is now saying that more needs to be done for Europe, and we believe that when it comes to Nord Stream 2, we have taken an extremely pro-European position. I hear gratitude from European diplomats almost all day for taking these measures.

- he stressed.

According to Grenell, the US goal is "to prevent a country from gaining too much influence in Europe through energy."

On Friday, the United States adopted a defense budget for 2020, which provides for the imposition of sanctions against the Nord Stream-2 and Turkish Stream gas pipelines. The German government called the US sanctions "interference in European affairs."

Active opponents of the construction of gas pipelines were Ukraine, Lithuania, Poland, Latvia and a number of European countries, as well as the United States, which seek to replace cheap Russian gas with more expensive shale gas.

        US ambassador to Germany: sanctions against gas pipelines adopted in the interests of the European Union

        With such a US logic as that of Washington and its ambassadors, even Kolomoisky "saw the light", saying that "the US wants Ukraine" to wage a war in Ukraine with Russia "to the last Ukrainian"!

        And the idiot US ambassador to Berlin Richard Grenell, in an interview with Bild, is "bending over" in the media about the alleged observance by Washington / Pentagon of protecting the interests of the EU countries from Russian gas !.

            Does the EU know that sanctions against European companies are "in the interests of the European Union"?

            The European Union is opposed to the introduction of US sanctions against European companies conducting legitimate business.
            According to the representative of the European Commission, Brussels is analyzing the potential impact of these measures on European companies.

        Alex2048, stop talking nonsense. The share of Gazprom in the European gas import market is 70% and it will only increase thanks to the closure of the Dutch giant Groningen, the Norwegian fields and British platforms in the North Sea. By the way, Kobolyev is a real "Agent of the Kremlin", because of the circus organized by Naftogaz, all of Europe has been buying gas from Gazprom for the past six months, and despite the warmest 2019 in the history of Europe in 100 years, plus a 2-fold drop in gas prices - nevertheless, Gazprom further increased its share in the European market and even reached record revenue figures in 2018.

            In bulk, this is Gazprom’s share in the common European gas market, because Europe, in particular Norway, Denmark, Britain, Italy and the Netherlands, also produce gas in the seas. It is about import to all Algerian and Azerbaijani gas pipelines, Qatar, the USA, Nigeria, Australia with their LNG - in total only 30% of imports account for (now apparently less, Novatek started supplying the EU), the rest is Gazprom.

          And if you don’t dry the pan and think?)
          Back in the middle of the 140s, Gazprom pumped 5 billion cubic meters through Khokhlumbia, and for the last 85 years 90-65 billion. Next year only 22, and only 40 in 3m, so we are safely getting rid of the "square". There is a continuation of further minimization. Skakuas say: "hurray, won, returned 60 billion!" But earlier, Naftogaz wanted 30 billion and 90 billion of capacity reservation, i.e. actually 5 billion cubic meters per year. That is, they got much less than they wanted. A good result for them could be said if the contract was not for 10 years and not for such volumes, but for 60 years and for 3 or more billion cubic meters. And the conditions that were agreed upon are a historical dill. For these 2 billion (Naftogaz buys gas for $ 2050 billion a year), the non-dealers exchanged the opportunity to conclude an agreement on transit for a long time. For example, the same Slovakia - its operator Unistream has an agreement with Gazprom until 20. With Poland, a contract for XNUMX years.
          Essentially, the non-prosperous fighting for Russian transit are fighting for Russia's welfare.laughing. For $ 1 transit Russia receives about $ 60. Regarding the contract, tariff and volume, everything will be according to the rules of the Third Energy Package, it is higher than any gas contracts and domestic Ukrainian legislation, so that Ukraine has definitely lost with its Wishlist, listen and enlighten:

And in Russia it is the people who decide and 76% of Russians last year chose Vlalimir Vladimirovich, the most influential politician on the planet, according to the world's leading analytical agencies. The rest of the husk scored only a measly 23% in total, they are just a cell on the map - sometimes they go to it.

                      What is it like? Yes, they began to reckon with us to a greater extent than in 2000, but we are still far from a superpower. Do not wishful thinking.

                      And in Russia, the people decide and 76% of Russians chose Vlalimir Vladimirovich last year

                      And what was the direct choice? I’m even afraid to think about what you’ll do when Putin, because of his age, is unable to lead.
                      opposes the entire world West with its gigantic many times superior to any resources? And yet we win

                      The whole world doesn’t want to buy from us, but do we forcibly sell it to them, or maybe we chopped off land from the whole world to the Russian Federation? Or how do we conquer and conquer this world, but cannot defeat everything? What are we fighting for? What are the criteria for victory?
                      nobody was going to abandon ukrotransit for 2020
                      so we not only wrote for 2020 ... And so for 5 years with the possibility of extension until 2034. By your logic, is it just fine to make a deal to sell gas with opponents, or are we with them somewhere in opposition, and in some places help them?

                        I understand that you are being bombed by the greatness of Russia, I can recommend a napkinlaughing... Yes, we are indeed a superpower, we have the most powerful Strategic Nuclear Forces on the planet, we are a global energy leader, we hold most of the gas market and thereby directly influence the politics of entire regions with a "gas club", Rosatom is building 68% of new nuclear power plants on the planet in a dozen countries , all other players account for a miserable 32%, we occupied 50% of the world uranium enrichment market, even half of the US nuclear power plants depend on our supplies and there is nothing to replace them with, we can cut off and Matrasia will instantly lose 25% of its generation. We are ranked 1st in the world in the export of wheat and vegetable oil, 1st in the world in the production of helicopters, 4 memtos in the world in the production of railway equipment, 1st in the production of isotopes, 1st in the production of vaccines, we are the only ones in the world that have hypersonic weapons, we have taken for ourselves 50% of the World Arctic and there oil and gas for tens of trillions of dollars, we are implementing the world's largest infrastructure and energy projects, we have created the most powerful laser in the world, Russia ranks third in the world in building bridges (IMF data), Rosatom produces 3% of RTGs in the world, we are the only ones to have created a "closed fuel cycle", MOX fuel of a new technological order, we are the only ones in the world to build floating nuclear power plants and nuclear icebreakers, we are the third in the world in the production of oil products and chemical fertilizers. Isn't it a superpower? All ports of the USSR handled 60 million tons per year, in the Russian Federation now more than a billion tons. 3% of production facilities in the processing industry were created in the 600s, the average age of products is 75 years, 2000 new airports, 12 new stations have been built, the number of federal highways has doubled: from 3 thousand km to 12 thousand. And yes, we are returning Russian lands to their homeland.
                        With regards to "slicing", then for ANY policy in history I will give you so many contradictory slices that any of them will outstrip Putin not even tens but hundreds of times. And then they got used to pulling the tongue, looking for a speck in a miraculous eye and in their meantime not even a log but a whole timber truck. About age generally amused, the old barely moving paperdos Donald is 9 years older than Putin and for the 2nd term he is balancing, his main competitors are weak Biden, Bloomberg and Sanders in general 80 tomorrow, Warren is also over 70. At the same time, Putin, unlike these junk, is a master of sports in Sambo and judo, every day a kilometer swims with breaststroke, even in your best years you would not have fulfilled such standards and throws, and if you tried, you would lie and write now under a droplet. Yes, it's not even about Vladimir Vladimirovich, the country is clearly led by a team of security officials, Patrushev, Bortnikov, Shoigu, Gerasimov, etc., believe me, the new receiver will continue the course, only tougher and more successful. Yes, you yourself understand everything, but you are afraid to admit to yourself. What nafig "choice"?)) Liberd Lechaim Onalny?) So these infantiles will not gain 1%. Leftists are various offshore cashiers, the Krubnikins-Siskins and other side-by-side ones, for whom he drowned millions of trolls in red trousers in social networks?) So, in total, they scored only 13%, and Putin - 76%. Relax, this is REALITY.
                        Now about ukrotransit. In 2019, Gazprom supplied 92 billion cubic meters through Khokhlumbia, and only 2021 in 40, while with less than 45 ukroGTS becomes unprofitable, and at 35 it is technically incapable of transit and will collapse for a maximum of a couple of years. And note, no contracts have been signed yet, because the fans understand that according to the rules of the Third Energy Package, it is FULL responsibility for delivering Russian gas to the EU border, and that's why they puzzlelaughing. Murphy's law for Ukraine did not forget hope? Let me remind you: after a day, the guarantee turns into zrada, and the zrada after a while becomes a ganbagood... And after 2024 there is no binding document, there will be no "Ukraine" itself by that time, the point is not only in the destruction of the GTS and the increasing total depopulation (from 91 the population decreased from 52 to 26 million), there will still be a drop in generation sharp, out of 15 ukroenergoblokov only 9 are working and they are living out their last years, and this is 70% of the generation of "nezalezhnaya" for a minute. Plus 70% of the mines are closed, there are critical cracks in the Dnipro HPP (official information), the thermal power plant is also on its last legs, in 2024 there will not even be anyone to talk to, the last migrant worker will turn off the light at the Borispol airportlaughing.
                        And lastly, stop repeating these mantras of the old fart Donald about 90% of oil, the Assad army has long occupied 40% of the oil fields of the SAR, in the same Rakka, Homs, Hasek, Aleppo, etc., which are controlled by the official Syrian authorities. Yes, the mattress has about 50% of the deposits left, well, since Syria has never been a full-fledged oil-producing country, it’s pure crumbs for itself, so the crumbs and Assad got the same crumbs. The main wealth of Syria is its geopolitical position and 70% of the world's phosphate reserves (all in the territory of the controlled ATS), the most important raw material for the agro-industrial complex, the estimated cost of about 1 trillion (!) $, And all this is expected to be mastered by Russian companies.

              Of course, we’ll finish it. No one will drop the pipeline readily by 90 percent.
              But there will be certain difficulties.
              Today, several vessels can serve for the implementation of the project: TUB (pipe-laying barge) “MRTS Defender”, capable of laying pipes to a depth of 150 meters. TUB “MRTS Fortuna” - up to 200 meters and the “Akademik Chersky” pipeline ship owned by Gazprom.
              These vessels are able to complete the “SP - 2", but Defender and Fortuna have an anchor positioning system, and Denmark requires a dynamic positioning system to issue permits. Two of these vessels also have a lower pipeline speed: up to 1 km per day. "Academician Chersky" has a dynamic positioning, but is now in the Far East, and in order to arrive at the construction site "SP-2", he needs 2 months.

                x.andvlad, your information is not entirely correct, SP-2 is 97% completed, out of 2430 km, only a micro section 44 km away remains to be completed. Regarding the fact that Denmark has requirements for dynamic positioning for work in waterways - this information has not been confirmed by anyone, it was announced only by one source, SP "Global Platts". "Chersky" may well reach in 5 weeks. But more importantly, the imposed sanctions imply a ban on work in waters with a depth of 200 m and more, and the unfinished section of 44 km has a depth of 5 to 20 m, plus the sanctions imply 30 days from the date of introduction to the completion of work, so Allseas has already submitted a letter to the US Treasury for clarification, experts say there is a 90% probability of completion. Speech about "finish building-ge finish building" is not worth the word AT ALL, it is only about how to finish building in a couple of weeks and this is quite real.

          The share may amount to at least a few percent ... The question is, in comparison with 2014, terminals for receiving LNG have appeared in Europe, albeit in small quantities, but LNG is coming in ... And this makes it possible to manipulate Gazprom in the EU by refusing to our gas. And if before there was absolutely nothing to replace our gas and it was vital for the EU, now the situation is changing. At least, those who voted for the sanctions on the Russian Federation and promoted the idea of ​​abandoning gas dependence on the Russian Federation, etc., achieved this in the EU at least. this is what leads to a weakening of the influence of the Russian Federation. What is important is the very possibility of the EU refusing gas from the Russian Federation, and not how much space we currently occupy on the market.

            Alex2048, at least you wouldn’t repeat other people's mantras, but read the real numbers. There have been LNG terminals in Europe since the 90s, while Gazprom's share in the European gas market is growing every year. By the way, Gazprom is also a large LNG producer; new projects are being introduced in Sakhalin, Kaliningrad, and the Pskov region. Plus, Russia's Novatek is becoming one of the world's largest LNG producers; in general, by 2024, Russia will produce about 120 billion cubic meters of LNG. An important point is not only that our pipeline gas is 30-50% cheaper than American and Qatari LNG, but also the fact that thanks to the Arctic Cascade technology mastered by Novatek even our LNG is cheaper than any other LNG, we ourselves sell gas to the States from time to timesmile. But more importantly, Gazprom is also engaged in gas processing, two of the largest on the planet are being completed
            gas processing plants - in the Amur Region and Ust-Luga, in the latter, in particular, they are building a whole city with infrastructure and the largest Baltic port: https: //youtu.be/XilHZj1p1fI

              Alex2048, at least you wouldn’t repeat the mantras of others, but familiarize yourself with real numbers.

              The question is not how much gas is currently supplied by the Russian Federation, but what is the added value now on the gas supplied. This is so to say the first. Well, the second, no less important circumstance, how much gas could actually be supplied for consumption in the EU without Russia in 2014 and now? This very tendency that at some point in time our gas can be replaced without other damage by other suppliers weakens the overall influence of the Russian Federation on Europe in this danger, and not in the fact that we can or cannot deliver gas to the market . We could be able to fill even the existing pipelines even more now, but instead of going by filling up the existing capacities, the Russian Federation moved towards creating new ones that have already fallen under energy packages, and foreign companies took them in travel companions, by the way, not for free. And about the fact that we supply LNG to the United States is this a victory? Obviously, for the USA it is more profitable to buy foreign gas in some places than to drag your own gas to all parts of the country. Our Gazprom is also not eager to sell its gas throughout Russia.

                Alex2048, I ask you - do not go into those topics where you do not understand nicherta. It's really funny for me to comment on your amateurish reasoning. In Russia, the cost of gas production and DELIVERY (this is especially important) is about 35 (!) Times lower than, for example, American or Australian LNG, we are completely bringing them to their knees, it is not for nothing that US shale companies have been bankrupt for the last 5 years in a row, about 70% the market in general nafig is gone, and their total debts of almost $ 200 billion are hanging over the market, plus the number of drilling rigs is falling year after year. In addition, shale gas is chemically mixed with impurities and has a lower energy intensity, it is necessary not only to spend money on regasification, but also to purify it, in fact it is not used in everyday life in Europe, mainly in chemical production. The share of the same States in the European gas market is only 1 (in words - ONE)%, and Gazprom's share is 36,7%, while the largest European gas field, the giant Groningen, is being depleted, Norway's reserves in the Barents Sea are being depleted and Britain's reserves in the North Sea are close to zero, plus they are closing Nuclear power plants in Germany and a part in France, so the share of Gazprom will only grow. By the way, if you look at the% not of the European gas market as a whole, but exclusively of European gas imports, then Gazprom's share is more than 60%, that is, all these Algeria, Qatar, America, Australia, Azerbaijan and other Nigeria account for less than 40% in total, and Taking into account the supplies of Novatek, 35% is already evident. This is for you about the mention of 2014, after which we took over the market even more. With regards to "not free", so bingo !, you finally get it. Only it is not free for European energy companies, because they have invested 50% in SP2 and they also bear the costs together with us. They will even pay half of this fine of 2,9 billion, since Gazprom is 51% state-owned, and half for European investors, that is, the Russian state will pay less than 1,5 billion. And finally, about "not burning with desire", back in 91st gasification Russia was only 50%, and now more than 69%. The Power of Siberia project (especially with its second stage) will increase the country's gasification to 78%. For comparison, in microscopic Britain and Japan, less than 25% of the territory is gasified, in the States only 30%. So what I really note in the end is that in Soviet times, almost all of the gas was produced in the RSFSR, and at the same time, at the expense of the same RSFSR, all sorts of limitrophic Armenia, Georgia and other ukraines were gasified by 95%, while Russia was only 50%. This is truly outrageous.

      And if you don’t dry the pan and think?)
      Back in the middle of the 140s, Gazprom pumped 5 billion cubic meters through Khokhlumbia, and for the last 85 years 90-65 billion. Next year only 22, and only 40 in 3m, so we are safely getting rid of the "square". There is a continuation of further minimization. Skakuas say: "hurray, won, returned 60 billion!" But earlier, Naftogaz wanted 30 billion and 90 billion of capacity reservation, i.e. actually 5 billion cubic meters per year. That is, they got much less than they wanted. A good result for them could be said if the contract was not for 10 years and not for such volumes, but for 60 years and for 3 or more billion cubic meters. And the conditions that were agreed upon are a historical dill. For these 2 billion (Naftogaz buys gas for $ 2050 billion a year), the non-dealers exchanged the opportunity to conclude an agreement on transit for a long time. For example, the same Slovakia - its operator Unistream has an agreement with Gazprom until 20. With Poland, a contract for XNUMX years.
      Essentially, the non-prosperous fighting for Russian transit are fighting for Russia's welfare.laughing. For $ 1 transit Russia receives about $ 60. Regarding the contract, tariff and volume, everything will be according to the rules of the Third Energy Package, it is higher than any gas contracts and domestic Ukrainian legislation, so that Ukraine has definitely lost with its Wishlist, listen and enlighten:
      https://youtu.be/wrwE_KLXxGY
      I’m watching the kremelebots got a fresh training manual and the next discharge of the Gazprom gang led by the former director of the hotel is already being given out as a brilliant victory, preferring not to notice videos on the Internet where Miller and the company were puffing their cheeks and giving guarantees that from 01.01.2020 there was no gas transit through Ukraine will be. But as practice shows, pouring dear Russians into the ears is one thing, and playing politics with older uncles is another. And yet, the share of Gazprom’s gas in the future will only decrease. The Poles have already sent these defective managers by the forest, and after 5 years we will plant half of Europe on their LNG. Where such confidence ? Yes, from Mr. Miller’s forecasts, all his forecasts come true with the exact opposite, and vice versa, he also remembered about shale oil that it was nonsense, now it’s also unbalanced, and they say that he doesn’t compete with Ov gas. However, Mr. Miller should not be discouraged, as a last resort, all the costs as usual will be paid by dear Russians.

        Unlike your moaning and everyday whining - life and the economy go their own way, Gazprom will get an increase in its shares from the extension of the contract, get rid of lawsuits worth tens of billions of dollars, as well as possible lawsuits to disrupt supplies, get rid of the problem of gas theft, since now only the Ukrainian side is responsible for the transit under the contract, JV 2 will be completed in the next month and a half, Gazprom is also supplying LNG to Europe; currently, Baltic LNG and Arctic LNG are being built, to the already delivered 15 gas carriers, they plan to purchase another 10, the first two lines of the Turkish stream the launch is scheduled for January 8 next year, its continuation The Balkan flow is nearing completion, so there will be no reduction in the share of Gazprom’s gas in Europe - even in the long term, Gazprom has an even larger project, Siberian Power 2 by 80 billion cubic meters of gas There is a project of a gas pipeline to Kazakhstan for 14 billion cubic meters per year - without work and profit until 2030 and further Gazprom will definitely not stay, and as for cheap LNG, it will not be cheap for a long time; suppliers will not need profit; the main thing is to hook more on their product, competitors will surrender, and there prices will go up. And the Poles are good fellows - you have to look for such suckers for 20 years; a contract for LNG for these 20 years, the United States will completely shine them.

          Gazprom in chocolate? It's fine. You can be happy for Europe and China. And for top managers of Gazprom. You are right - there will be no sense from everyday whining and moaning. However, without whining, there will be no further sense .. - Well, it’s not Russia supplying gas .. When the world runs out of oil and gas, everyone will return to coal. There is much more coal in the world than gas and oil .. But we are ready for such a turn - half the country is heated by coal. This is all because of the wise policy and the vision of our leadership ..!

            Oil and gas in the world will never end, since on the planet Earth there is a cycle of hydrocarbons and all organic and inorganic compounds, only helium and hydrogen fly into space. You have forgotten to mention nuclear energy; Russia is 60% ahead of the rest of the planet; it needs tens of trillions of rubles to gasify the rest, since the distance between settlements is tens and hundreds of kilometers - well, if you have so much money, please start tomorrow. total gasification of each population, and there are only 60000 of which are not gasified, throughout Russia.

      And where does this husband have his husband (or his wife - do not know which of them clings the second)? It seems that he usually appeared along with the ambassador at official events.
