The press reported a "very tough" telephone conversation between Trump and Merkel on Nord Stream-2

The American media writes that due to the Nord Stream-2 project, which is being implemented to transport gas from Russia to the EU countries, serious disagreements arose between Germany and the United States.


For example, Politico writes about a telephone conversation between Donald Trump and Angela Merkel, during which Trump expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that Germany continues to carry out activities aimed at the construction of SP-2 after the introduction of America's sanctions.

Trump was annoyed that the Russian pipe-laying vessel Akademik Chersky called at the German port of Mukran.

Recall that it was this vessel after the departure of the special vessels of the Swiss company Allseas from the water area of ​​the Nord Stream-2 construction that came to the Baltic Sea from the port of Nakhodka to complete the construction of the gas pipeline.

The German press notes that Angela Merkel, in a conversation with the American president, recalled that Berlin does not support extraterritorial sanctions. It is added that the conversation was "very tough."

It is noted that the disagreement between Merkel and Trump arose not only on the issue of the gas pipeline, but also on the financial parameters of NATO activity and on relations with China. The United States notes that Trump once again pointed out to Merkel that Germany “did not bring the military budget to the required 2% by the charter of the North Atlantic Alliance.”

          It’s more likely not even to strengthen, but to transfer from a partner’s state to a slave’s state.

            Old Merkel will remain in the history of Germany as a shameful page .. (an anecdote even walks on the network for such a long time)
            Most interesting, she was the head of the Friendship with the USSR GDR society .. Litter of the USA and Israel. !!!

                  But with a gun came out alone to the crowd

                  It didn’t. A fake about a gun was coined at the beginning of the 8s, and quite clumsy. The young author of the fake did not know that the KGB's service weapon at that time was an 20-charge PM, well, in the extreme case, a 60-charge APS, very large-sized and withdrawn from service in the late 14s. And the author of the fake armed his hero with a XNUMX-shot pistol. Well, one cannot ignore Soviet weapons to such an extent. However, if the fake was written from somewhere with Brighton Beach, then this is natural.

        Somehow on the Internet, an interesting article came across.
        Then I did not appreciate it, but now for some reason I can’t find it again.
        The meaning of the article was that a completely new era was beginning in which states would begin to live by the principle - each for itself.
        That the time of alliances and different blocs has come to an end.
        It was written by the 2 co-chairs of the Davos forum 10 years ago.
        And she came across to me after the election of Trump, as an example of the fact that this prediction began to come true. hi

We often scold the USA for their expansionist actions, such as the Ukraine project or the expansion of the influence of the NATO bloc. And this simply means that our Guards. TA have lost these lines and they are in control there are not economists and engineers from the USSR / RF, but specialists from the same americos, who are very active in mastering our borders. NATO is impuding exactly as much as we allow them to do so.

      So, in your opinion, it was not worth starting? But what about economic interests? they must be fought for. We calculated the risks, assumed the difficulties, and continue to struggle for the implementation of the project. If you retreat because of the perceived risks, then there will be no development at all. If you follow your logic, then Russia should not even start a single significant international project. Do you suggest “withdrawing yourself” (in the style of S. Korea) or will it turn into a satellite looking into the “master” mouth (in the type of Poland)?

      On May 27, Merkel said at a briefing that relations with the United States are not developing as well as she would like, and there are many contradictions. At the same time, she emphasized that the security of Europe is impossible without NATO, and Washington is a key ally of Europeans.

      If in the end it turns out that in spite of the perseverance of the “groom”, the chancellor complied with herself and at the same time, “gop zots is a pervert, and my grandmother is healthy,” then after a short time the descendants will erect monuments throughout Vaterland. With its anti-Soviet stubbornness, it unties the hands of the future chancellor, who, in a good situation, will inherit a non-volatile Germany with a multi-vector foreign policy and the prospect of multifaceted economic development. Exaggerated her position is this: to whom I owe (chancellor-pact, etc.) - I forgive everyone. Dembel is just around the corner. I am old, if anything - bring everything to me.

    the conversation was "very tough."
    The stiffness of the conversation probably consisted in the fact that Merkel did not assent to Trump's ingrained habit. When the economic well-being of your country is at stake, you can turn on a little "rigidity." Now it’s clear why Merkel said before that the sanctions against Russia over the Donbass need to be continued. Prepared for herself at least a small bedding before the upcoming conversation with Trump. And the latter set off in all serious ways - WHO on the side, Hong Kong preferences with the aim of harming China on the side, graters with his beloved Twitter, resumption of nuclear weapons tests ...

    How could you even start such a project without thinking about the risks. Now everything depends on Merkel, and Russian citizens will pay the losses. Miller in chocolate, like with "goose water." To lead this way, you don’t need a mind, it’s enough to have no conscience!

    In the Government of Russia are boobies, more than a steelworker. They did not provide. Then you need to send to the penguin, you, after all, see through the underground through.
    Though such a benefit will be from you. What are you guessing? On the Karo maps?

    Merkel also needs to be pleased with the Phashington owners and the local kapitalyugs, turns around like a frying pan and suffers and suffers and makes the country suffer from her lackeys and stupidity, but she cannot be driven away from the feeder.

    American multinationals and Trump's head, driven by genetic greed, continue to show the world the noble and democratic methods of managing the free market. But it's' too late. Too serious guys fit into the expansion of European gasification, and the dispersal of the Swiss pipe-laying flotillas will not work here.
    Very far-sightedly introduced to the business of the old fox Schroeder. He and Vasya are Vasya, and he knows all the entrances and exits in the European chicken coop.

    In general, it turns out okay. Trump himself came up with a 2% topic at the NATO cash desk, and now this is considered a reinforced concrete rebuke in any dispute. I goof off with these democracies.

    the policy of the Russian states, when Russia offering its goods to the Germans does not require the Germans to necessarily abandon the American goods, there is a model of decency in
    politics. And the United States not only offers its goods to the Germans, but also requires the Germans to give up Russian goods, which are also much cheaper than American ones. And this is already blackmail in politics, because it is possible to make buying more expensive instead of buying cheaper only through intimidation through blackmail. But after all, for a thousand years, as an Anglo-Saxon, foreign policy was conducted through blackmail, and the United States has also been conducting such foreign policy for more than a hundred years. So now let the Germans be in the shoes of those who were blackmailed themselves, as they themselves were blackmailing others, and maybe then the Germans will realize that concessions to the blackmailer lead to the collapse of state independence. I think that the Germans have enough ambition and mind to show their independence by buying goods from Russia is cheaper than from America is much more expensive. Tavara, who from America will need more. than the one you would buy from Russia, because liquefied gas from a gas carrier requires one unit of consumption much more than gas from a gas pipeline that is similar to a unit of consumption

      Local gas distributors in Europe, primarily German ones, sell gas to Europe at many times more expensive than the Gazprom price, and Americans cannot deprive them of such a gain.

    The problem here is that the gas issue is for Europe, and in the first place of Germany, in fact, those on average are the questions of economic survival. content competitive ability European industry. Esli will not be cheaper environmentally friendly energy European industry will begin to lose market od East dragons China, South Korea, Japan and the United States in the west. In other words, the industry of Europe will die. Merkel defending large capital Europe does not want sanctions on Ruski Gas. In addition, Ruski cheap environmentally friendly gas will travel east and there will be a wind in the back of the Chinese economy. In Europe, only one economic suicide can refuse Russian gas.

    The hegemon loses its influence and slowly its allies begin to look for other alliances.
    Accordingly, the hegemonic Wishlist are executed with an eye on the current situation.

    It is noted that the disagreement between Merkel and Trump arose not only on the issue of the gas pipeline, but also on the financial parameters of NATO activity and on relations with China.

    An interesting article on the attitude of Merkel to China is on Deutsche Welle.
