German Press: German Economy Minister will not give up Nord Stream 2 "without a fight"

26

Nord Stream 2 is an international project conceived for decades to come. So it is wrong to question its implementation every few months.


This statement was made by the Federal Minister of Economic Affairs and Energy of Germany Peter Altmeier in an interview with the German business newspaper Handelsblatt, published last week.

The senior official spoke out strongly against the cessation of the construction of the Russian gas pipeline, which will connect Russia and Germany along the bottom of the Baltic Sea. Altmaier believes that Nord Stream 2 must be completed.

In the aftermath of the incident with Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, in which the Kremlin was accused of deliberately poisoning him, many in Germany began to demand the strictest sanctions against Russia. Peter Altmeier suggests, before imposing sanctions, to think about whether they will harm the German economy in the first place. We must not forget that the FRG is very active in foreign economic activity, and Nord Stream 2 is intended not only for Germany, but also for a number of other European countries.

At the same time, the German Minister of Economics emphasizes that he, like all members of the Federal Government, strongly condemns the attempt on the life of Alexei Navalny. But this should not be a reason for stopping the construction of the gas pipeline.

Altmaier will not give up Nord Stream 2 without a fight,

- written by German journalists.

Meanwhile, on the pages of the German Der Spiegel, an article has been released, which claims that Chancellor Angela Merkel "secretly" visited Alexei Navalny at the Sharite clinic.

      Nord Stream 2 is lobbied solely out of the mercantile interests of concessionaires and individuals.
      It has no practical significance, since even Nord Stream 1 is not operating at full capacity.
      Accordingly, for the citizens of the Russian Federation, sowing flow 2 is initially unprofitable and will never pay off.

        For us (citizens of Russia):
        - it’s better to complete the construction than to waste the invested funds.
        I am of that opinion.
        As a citizen of Russia.

        And let the rest think for themselves.

          Strongly said, but for me it is important that gas prices on the territory of Russia become cheaper and that this gas is provided, first of all, to the citizens of Russia in the farthest corners!
          How do you like this turn?

            You have a violation of causation. The closure of the SP-2 project will not be able to positively affect the gasification of the Russian Federation, rather the opposite.

              The opening / closing of SP2, the forces of Siberia and other advanced permogs in general will NOT in any way affect either gasification or the well-being of ordinary citizens of the Russian Federation.

                  I am very sorry, colleague, but wrinkling and getting up rocky is your prerogative, you can grimace as much as you want and even write nasty things about the mental abilities of your opponents, no one forbids you.
                  Come on, go ahead, broadcast about the winners of the construction of empty gas pipelines, just do not forget to tell your putriotically minded fellow citizens why gas tariffs inside the country are becoming more expensive!

                    It is obvious that if the Americans and some Eastern Europeans are trying with all their might to stop this flow, then it is not profitable for them from the word at all. And if someone is not very profitable, then it should be very profitable for another. Try to guess who. And finally, serious European companies would not have invested a cent in a project that they know to be a failure.

          We need to finish building!
          A lot of money has been invested, reputation costs will also be impressive if the project is canceled.
          Plus, this is one of the ways to conduct international policy and receive funds for the budget through foreign exchange earnings.

          Well, our overseas "partners" will not be allowed to transfer Europe to their LNG. After all, if we surrender in this project, we will also lose the Ukrainian transit after a while (through a terrorist attack or hostilities, for example, or by the decision of the puppet authorities). And then the States will twist the hands of the Europeans specifically.

          Our gas and oil pipelines run through Poland through Ukraine and Belarus. But how many Poles are our friends we see every day. And they are clearly unreliable, on instructions from overseas, they can block.

          As for Poland, they clearly do not want to receive gas from Germany. Now they are in transit and have a political and economic trump card. And here the Germans will get freedom of maneuver, and they will also determine whether to supply the Poles with gas or not. That is, there will be a change of roles, which will mean both the economic strengthening of Germany and an increase in its sovereignty. And we need a smarter partner who isn't overly influenced.

    The whole question is - will Trump break Merkel or not?
    And then - will the United States finish off Germany at all, or will they survive?
    What will be more profitable for the Germans - cheap Russian gas or politics?

    The fact that Merkel could visit Navalny - I BELIEVE! she also visited Tymoshenko, and was touching her by the handle. So quite ...
    Every mc the question of sanctions and the demand to stop the construction of Nord Stream 2 is raised? And who is it? Who's nerves are losing?
    All the same, the Germans are very pragmatic people and know how to count money. I hope that common sense will prevail, despite all the publications. The people will say thank you later,

    So this Altmaier has already surrendered the Nord Stream and surrendered without a fight.

    No.
    She, bending over the little one, gently whispered.
    - Sign out already and get out of here Leshenka, until something worse comes out.
    He checked out.

    You can visit the "Novice" only in a protective spacesuit. Who will show that after the use of an incredibly "dangerous agent" - from a hotel in Omsk to "Sharite", all and sundry will come to him, without fear of any consequences. There is some kind of selectivity, this OV, on a national or racial basis.
