US sanctions and cod spawning: Russia is prevented from completing Nord Stream 2

Russia is still unable to resume construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline for one, but very important reason - cod spawning is taking place at the site of the pipeline. The Danish government has banned all work in the area of ​​Bornholm Island, the ban will remain in effect until the end of August.


So far, nothing is happening at the bottom of the Baltic Sea near the island of Bornholm. In July and August, cod spawns in these waters, all work is prohibited for environmental reasons

- write the German media.

It is reported that the resumption of work is possible in September, then nothing will interfere with the completion of the gas pipeline. The Akademik Chersky vessel and the Fortuna barge are ready to start laying pipes.

Meanwhile, it became known that the head of the US Department of State Mike Pompeo visited Copenhagen last week. There is no official information on the reasons for the visit, but according to unofficial information, Pompeo came to discuss the construction of the Russian gas pipeline with the Danish authorities.

Against this background, it is reported that the US is increasing pressure on European contractors involved in the construction of the pipeline. According to German media, 12 American officials from three ministries (the US Department of State, the Ministry of Finance and the US Department of Energy) are conducting "explanatory conversations" with representatives of the firms involved in the project, during which they hint at negative consequences for them due to participation in the construction. " Nord Stream-2 ". Earlier, the US House of Representatives tightened sanctions against the gas pipeline.

In turn, Germany spoke out against the US sanctions pressure. According to Klaus Ernst, Chairman of the Bundestag Committee on Economics and Energy, the US sanctions pressure on the participants of the Nord Stream 2 project violates the sovereignty of Europe and, in particular, Germany.

As before, I am amazed at the actions of the US government. I regard this as a direct attack on German and European sovereignty

- he said.

However, according to Ernst, so far nothing is known about Berlin's retaliatory measures against Washington, although more and more German politicians are advocating "a tougher response."

          yes
          Atlantic cod breeds off the coast of Norway and fattens in the Barents Sea and in the shallow waters off Svalbard. The main spawning grounds for this cod are in the Lofoten Islands (Norway). Spawning takes place in March - April at a depth of 100 m, on the border of the warm waters of the Atlantic and colder waters of the fjords. The fertilized eggs are picked up by the current, which carries them northward.


          But maybe this is some kind of exclusive "special edition" Atlantic cod (lat. Gadus morhua)? belay

          Or( purely as a guess yes ) the fish was in quarantine, and therefore had to spawn later repeat

      About cod - this is every year, everyone knew, everything is available ... Pompeo is not here in any way ... Everything is spoken and negotiated ... April 2021, but the land plot is a big question (the Germans will not dare against sanctions, IMHO)
      Another question is that we are not burning either: there is no price, no demand, too, the lohlyatskie beggars have to pay for another three years (before the contract is reduced to 15 billion cubic meters).

      After the cod, the flounder, then the lamprey, then the eels, then the pike from the island of Madagascar will begin, and when it spawns, the sharks of the southern seas will come: they forgot their spawning grounds, so we decided to try to breed in the Baltic, maybe it will be better here on the Norwegian coast ... In the end, everything can be blamed on the Icelandic herring, of which there are many near Iceland, but not in the Baltic, everything was transferred because of the damned pipeline, it is urgent to multiply ...

        By and large, the common man does not care about this stream. The only bad thing is that the lost profit will be given to Gazprom from the budget, according to some clever schemes. The state will not drown its wealth. And they will raise taxes and introduce new ones. And on TV they will show the next parade and a ship / tank / rocket / diaper that has no analogues in the world (underline the necessary).

            Geological exploration drilling yielded a negative result. In the area that the Norgam departed. It seems to be more to the north, but even the Norgs have no money for this business. So for 10 years of negotiations, Norgi received only cod and perch. According to my information, Kirsanovka (Kirkenes) is already half our city. You have a sound judgment on this issue. And then all the scammers got it. All the Barentsukhe and the Norwegian Sea is traveled far and wide. By me. In 79 Norgi for vodka in your zone, do whatever you want, just do not be impudent.

    Last week, the head of the US Department of State Mike Pompeo visited Copenhagen
    It is clear that the main topic of the conversation was the construction of SP-2 in the Danish economic zone. Denmark resisted the construction as best it could, but in the end was forced to give permission. And after the visit of the main fighter against "Russian interference" and the Chinese Communist Party, the cod finally spawned. I wonder who (what) will "spawn" in September-October? Frankly speaking, the sluggish and extremely thin verbal reaction of Germany and the silence of representatives of other countries participating in the construction are outraged. It’s not a matter of fact, but dependence on US policy is obvious.
