US Senate approves new sanctions against Nord Stream 2

68

Yesterday, the United States Senate, which serves as the upper house of the US Congress, approved by a majority the defense budget bill for the next fiscal year, which, among other things, introduces new sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 and Turkish Stream pipelines. It was adopted a day after the approval of a similar draft, which was submitted to the House of Representatives.


The bill envisages the introduction of restrictions against companies that directly or indirectly contribute to the completion and commissioning of Russian gas pipelines. In particular, pipe-laying organizations, ship insurers, as well as companies involved in the maintenance and retrofitting of pipe-layers may fall under the new sanctions.

The new defense budget was supported by 86 senators, and 14 members of the Senate voted against it. John Barraza, who voted in favor of the bill, praised its significance:

These sanctions will help halt pipeline construction work and eliminate this Russian geopolitical weapon.

      By the way, we cannot get rid of the Anglo-Saxon infection with a simple message, because, according to their logic, the next ban will be imposed on the purchase of Russian LNG, oil and other goods (including such as the construction of new nuclear power plants, weapons, medicines) purchased by EU countries.
      So we need to do something with the United States, but also to restore the economy and invest in breakthrough technologies so as not to depend on their quirks and tricks.

        Even these sanctions are not actually against Russia. and against the European allies of the United States

          By the way, why should they be skewed precisely from "powerlessness"? Along the way, pipelines are being built, gas is running, the treasury is filling up, MATTRESSES have shown their essence in such a way that even the inhibited Europeans have got the idea that their "ally" is not an ally at all, but an outrageous one. Where did you get exhausted? What slowed down the pace of construction and SP-2 will not be commissioned by December 20? So this is no longer relevant either for Russia or for Europe, since signed an agreement on transit through the American Ukrainian colony for a period of 5 years. So this is bullshit. Now you can build a gas pipeline 100 meters a day (weld four pipes of 25 meters each) and not rush, because anyway, they will finish building in five years, even on "rubber boats" without any pipe-layers. Well, there .... Hello to dill and mattresses! In the 80s, the United States also resisted with a horn against the gas pipeline from the USSR to Europe, as well as imposed sanctions and embargoes, but the gazulya has been pumping gas for 40 years since then.

      The document contains a fad imposing sanctions on the companies that certify the pipeline. Even if they are completed, they will not be able to put it into operation.
      There are only a few such companies. And they are unlikely to want to lose the world market. Another site had a detailed article about this.

          No need to poke


          Oh, you.. student ..))

          Do not hesitate to contact "you" on the Internet: the philosophy of the Web denies hierarchy.

          There is no such dilemma for English-speaking users: there is “you”, and there is no need to hesitate for a long time, referring to a stranger online. On the Russian-speaking Internet, everything is much more complicated: there is “you”, “you” and the constant observance of subordination because of this (we will deliberately ignore people who for some reason use “you”). But, given that different ways of addressing are building a certain hierarchy, the question arises: is it logical on the Internet, which seems to equalize everyone, to start from a possibly outdated system of divisions into "you" and "you"?

          On the contrary, you should not wait for a respectful "you" if the opportunity to comment on your posts and photos is given to anyone you meet

          The Internet has provided freedom of access to information, which means it has destroyed existing social barriers or at least protected the virtual world from them. Users became not just equal - they were given the chance to become anyone on the Web: change their appearance (put an avatar to their liking) and choose any name (come up with a nickname). Usually "you" is appropriate and highly desirable when addressing people older in age, social hierarchy, and just strangers. But on the Internet, these factors do not play a big role and can be easily falsified.

          Of course, in countries with the same language peculiarity as in Russia (for example, France, Italy, Spain), “you” in the virtual environment is gradually dying out, and more and more people turn to each other only on “you”. Internet researchers and communications experts believe that everything depends on the boundaries that you yourself build: if you protect yourself with privacy settings and are not very contact in discussions (for example, you completely avoid them), then, of course, "poking" from the side other users are traumatic for you. On the contrary, you should not wait for a respectful "you" if the opportunity to comment on your posts and photos is given to anyone you meet. But the general trend is to make all users equal, including linguistically. You can of course use "you", but you will soon be in the minority.


          “In the philosophy of the Internet, we are all equal, regardless of age, gender, income or social status in real life. Addressing someone as “you” and expecting the same attitude towards yourself, you build a hierarchy that is contrary to network culture. "

    "Nord Stream-2" will be completed. Europe needs it. As in Soviet times, they completed the construction of oil and gas pipelines to Europe. And this is "honest" American competition and the agony of understanding that the SP-2 "is and will be
    Regarding, "These sanctions will help stop the pipeline construction work and eliminate this Russian geopolitical weapon." This pipe is naturally geopolitical, but the pipe has two ends. This is what South Stream showed on the example of Turkey. And the Americans themselves are not playing big geopolitical games - to plant Europe on their expensive shale gas is not a geopolitical weapon of the United States?

      This "expensive" gas costs less than Gazprom's gas, which Europe bought in the XNUMXs.

      This "expensive" gas is not American, the State Department does not sell gas, and cannot order American companies to conclude gas contracts. This is the gas of resellers, traders, they buy gas from the United States and transport this gas to the ports where they can be sold, that's all.

      The United States is a completely different country, where oil and gas does not belong to the state, private traders decide for themselves where and what to sell.

        Don't burst with complacency! The United States was created by businessmen and naturally does not decide where and what to sell, but if businessmen demand it, it will be sold, even if it is dismissed. If Russia starts doing this, you will go out on feces, with bulging eyes proving its aggressiveness.

    It is strange that in the world no one pays attention to very indicative fact - the presence of economic sanctions in the defense budget... Which in fact makes it legal for the American army to directly participate in unfair competition, waging wars to plunder and seize resources. At this rate, the "Overton Window" of the concept of what is acceptable for the US army will soon reach the point where they will officially declare a hunt with assassinations such as "safari" on people from other countries that they will not like for any reason.

    Regarding the sanctions .. - today an article appeared on the Lenta stating that our GAZ (automobile plant) is obliged to send monthly reports on its activities in the United States. Income, expenses, what money is spent on ... And also to confirm that Mr. Deripaska does not participate in the life of the enterprise in any way .. Otherwise - sanctions and kaput .. That's it. The independence of our enterprises is a fairy tale for children. And the dollar rules everything.

    Sanctions, sanctions, for the minke whales, it's like a sport where they never want to lose.
    It all depends on how many teams want to participate in such competitions, where the "winner" is appointed initially.

    let them sit in their imaginary reality! wrong conclusions lead to wrong decisions, and this is a mistake on a mistake! and attempts to correct the situation without understanding the essence of a strategic mistake will lead nowhere! and all this will grow lumpy, and then turn into an avalanche! we already see this process! they turn into a monkey with a grenade and it's scary!
