US intends to expand sanctions against Nord Stream 2

The US intends to expand sanctions against the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. As stated in the US State Department, new sanctions may be introduced against companies providing services or funding for ships involved in the construction of SP-2.


According to the explanation, the extended sanctions will apply to individuals or legal entities providing certain services or goods for the supply or operation of ships participating in the laying of the Nord Stream 2 and Turkish Stream gas pipelines. At the same time, it is emphasized that the sanctions may also apply to "financing for the modernization or installation of equipment on these ships."

(...) this decision is a legitimate answer, especially considering how much work remains to be done. We want all [involved in the project] parties to understand that they may be subject to our sanctions

- said the US Assistant Secretary of State for Energy Francis Fannon.

In July this year, the US Senate approved a draft 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 involves the imposition of restrictions on companies that directly or indirectly contribute to the completion of construction 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.

        And in general, that the States are suffering with separate sanctions against Russia?

        Let them introduce sanctions against stores, most of which are included in 5-6 retail groups with the participation of Western capital. It is clear that the US is building a new Iron Curtain or Berlin Wall around Russia. A great incentive for us to switch to self-sufficiency, as it was under the USSR.

          Even under N, S. Khrushchev, they began to buy grain from the United States ... And also "the deal of the century gas - pipes", in order to sell gas to Europe, they bought pipes and equipment for their laying (Urengoy - Pomary - Uzhgorod - and further to Europe).

      To announce sanctions on the German cities, on the streets of which the builders of JV 2 walk the legs of the builders of JV 2, to create an atmosphere of lepers around the builders, to direct the anger of the local population at them, not to let them into shops and bars. Ideally, it would be just to declare that there are no LGBT representatives among the JV XNUMX builders and that's it. , the construction site has closed!

        As well as blacks and wheelchair users. It was not possible to work on the offshore pipeline, only gas was pulled along the steppe. With all due respect, it would be interesting to look at the team of pipeline installers made up of disabled people. There, healthy people feel disabled by the evening, they barely crawl to the bed in the hotel ...

        America has a historically unique understanding of "fair competition" and "the fight against monopoly." You can recall a lot, but one textbook example is enough - when Standard Oil was legally divided within the framework of the "fight against monopoly", the owners and beneficiaries remained the same, but its cost, divided into "pieces", doubled.

        America has already bought Crimea from Ukraine for Russia for 5 billion invested in the Maidan. Now working to double the value of Gazprom?

Here the Chinese began to pull when they themselves became strong and before that they sat quietly. Plants with cheap, disenfranchised workers was a forced measure (we are not China now from the time of Deng Xiaoping, but you need to work and avoid sanctions) To catch up with the West, and if you just pull, then North Korea did not work out very well.

    At the same time, it is emphasized that the sanctions may also apply to "financing for the modernization or installation of equipment on these ships."

    Somehow all this is not very clear, at first there is information that eight anchors were installed on board the Akademik Chersky so that it could meet the requirements of the Germans and he will try it all out
    At the same time, the depth and characteristics of the seabed in this area in all respects correspond to the section where the laying of the remaining part of the pipeline will continue. https://topwar.ru/176089-sudno-akademik-cherskij-nachalo-podgotovku-k-rabotam-na-severnom-potoke-2.html

    and only then they remember that it is necessary to impose sanctions if someone decides to modernize
    At the same time, it is assumed that the companies that provided such services to the Nord Stream 2 vessels before October 20, 2020, and now do not provide them, will not be punished. https://www.rbc.ru/politics/20/10/2020/5f8ecf899a7947272d469043

      On February 7, 2018, in Limassol, nominee directors of Cypriot companies, acting in the interests of the minister, entered into two contracts for the sale and purchase of SIBEKO shares with KSRC and Kuzbassenergo, according to which their accounts opened with Sovcombank received 32 billion 515 million 710 thousand 920 rubles. The Prosecutor General's Office considers these funds to be illegal income of Mr. Abyzov and the companies under his control. Then, at the direction of the official, offshore companies purchased € 268 million for part of the proceeds, which were placed in the accounts of Sovcombank. Subsequently, € 172,5 million were spent on the purchase of German bonds, and another € 88 million were transferred to offshore accounts in the Cyprus branch of Promsvyazbank and the Latvian Rigensis Bank AS.

    Yes. And there's nothing you can do. The world is built for their desires. And even crises will not understand them, since they are themselves a fiction, like the "base currency". It remains to endure and drag. After all, to be honest, Europe from under Tishka also believes in us, because it itself cannot do anything like that in principle. They are now very afraid. Such open pressures have never been realized. What will happen to them if the madmen have such a need, it's scary to think.

    It is, of course, a global shame and Putin's personal shame, that since 1991, over the past 30 years, Russia has no economy, except for pipes for pumping raw materials, and has not appeared.
    These sanctions have a positive effect on the Russian Federation - they help Putinomics finally get off the oil and gas needle and develop the electronic and machine-tool industry.

    The United States is forcing the top of Russia to begin gasification of their own country)))))

    The wrong ones were attacked, our authorities know how to take a blow angry

    By robbing the impoverished Russian people. After all, the occupation government of the Russian Federation will skin off all its losses from ordinary, impoverished citizens of the Russian Federation, by increasing the gas tariff for them by 5 times.

    In response to the US sanctions on JV-2, Russia is imposing retaliatory sanctions on all foreign companies registered in the Russian Federation for using the US dollar as a settlement currency, up to the nationalization of all assets.
    This or something like this should be our response to the US sanctions.

    Only Soviet Russia after Putin can do this. The bourgeois Russian Federation cannot do this - the corrupt elite of the Russian Federation, connected by thousands of threads with the United States, will not give it.
