US State Department proposed to impose sanctions against pipelayer "Fortune"

The US State Department has not proposed any new sanctions against the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline under construction. Bloomberg reported this with reference to a report for the US Congress.


According to the newspaper, the list includes the Russian pipe-laying barge Fortuna and the owner of the KBT-Rus vessel, which are already subject to restrictions imposed by Donald Trump. At the same time, it is noted that the report does not contain a proposal to impose sanctions against any German or European companies involved in the construction of the Russian gas pipeline.

It is assumed that the absence of new sanctions indicates the desire of the new US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, not to spoil relations between Washington and Berlin, which intends to complete the construction of the gas pipeline.

Earlier, the White House set conditions for Berlin for the successful completion of Nord Stream 2. Joe Biden's administration proposed to Germany to create some kind of mechanism that would prevent the gas pipeline from operating in the event of a reduction in gas transit through Ukraine.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called these conditions humiliating.

Now they are writing openly that bargaining is underway and discussing the possibility of agreements between Washington and Berlin, according to which Nord Stream 2, okay, God bless you, let it be completed, let it function, but if suddenly gas transit through Ukraine suddenly decreases, then Nord Stream 2 will be shut down. I cannot decide for Germany, but the fact that this is a humiliating proposal is obvious to me

- said the Russian minister.

    Yesterday I assumed these sanctions. The crew and the owner. They reported to the voter. Read it. We are building further.

      Our solution was found long ago. The ship will be renamed, the company will be re-registered - and the pipe will continue to be pulled ... We have such scams that private traders run in a couple of days (they show it once a week on the news), and only at the state level ...

        So far, I do not see a reason even in periimination. The problem of certification of the pipeline itself needs to be resolved.

    During the whistle blowing with the completion of North Stream 2, the gas price has risen by $ 100, so the profit is so high that you don't have to complete anything at all. Just sit and store the money. laughing ..there are two more tankers under the flag of the Russian Federation, not small :( "Sierra" (DW105000 tns) and "Maksim Gorky" (DW320000 tns) hung up. Both are from the "Venezuelan Shipping Company" under our cover. Well, that doesn't matter. They have already seen everything.

    At least a wagon of sanctions in every tank.

    The dependence on the pipe does not give us the opportunity to disconnect Ukraine from transit and shift the costs of its maintenance to the United States, this is all that can be said about how we "got off the pipe"! hi

          We've all gone from the question 1/2, the load of the power of the sp2 and the continuation dry. Whose bank will spin the loot? Disconnect the outskirts at whose expense did not decide .. ownership of pipes and vaults inside the euro. It remains to wait 5 years and enjoy everything. We wanted to break our profits in 19 year chatter. This is strength and weakness. Kohlov must be dried. And the Poles.

      And what, Russia pays for gas transit through the territory of Ukraine and still supposedly has to maintain the GTS in working order ?! And with what fright ?! There is no union, has the GTS in Ukraine become Ukrainian? So let it be kept, since they want to receive for the transit of gas through it! Anyway, they got the ball!
      Otherwise, I bought a bike, rode, punctured the tires and with a claim to the seller or manufacturer - do it for me? An indescribable sample!

    Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Igor Ananskikh noted that the order has already been given to the pipelayer, it is working.

    “It's a big grief - he won't be able to work in the California or Florida area at the request of the American government. The owners of this pipelayer will survive this problem, ”the deputy told an RT correspondent.

    KMK is now hampering the construction of the SP-2 not by sanctions against the barge, but by the withdrawal from the project of certification and insurance companies. This is a really urgent problem now.

    Here you are laughing, and the State Department is now engaged in a five-year plan: sanctions against a barge, then against cranes on a barge, against ropes, anchors, latrines, and so on. - thousands of commodity items, two per day - for the entire period of work! Then you can impose sanctions on pipes, fittings, flanges, insulation, electrodes, and so on ... KVT-RUS of income for 2019 -0 !!!! laughing Do you really think everyone in Russia and Germany is mentally retarded idiots? This company is a dummy, it was created specifically for the successful conduct of economic hostilities under the sanctioned shelling of any power and intensity. All that remains effective for the United States is to inflict a real missile and torpedo attack on the pipelayer from a destroyer, but in such a case it can always be transferred to the balance of the Russian Navy. Bghh. laughing laughing

    if the gas transit through Ukraine suddenly decreases in parallel, then Nord Stream 2 will be closed. I cannot decide for Germany, but the fact that this is a humiliating proposal is obvious to me
    To begin with, Germany is no stranger to humiliation by Washington. They drove it under the bunk in due time, now sit and do not rock the boat. But about the overlap is interesting. Suppose we reduce the transit through Ukraine to 0, Germany in response shuts off the SP-2 and ... sits without gas at all?

          American LNG producers did not support the wishes of the State Department. If you want to strangle Nord Stream 2, pay the State Department money. When you say the dollar, American patriotism ends. LNG plants on the Atlantic coast, a short way to Southeast Asia through the Panama Canal - a plug, from gas carriers. You have to drive them across the Atlantic and Indian ocean. The price of gas in Southeast Asia is several times higher than in Europe. That's what the market is doing!

        They could - they would buy ... Such volumes are simply nowhere to be found. And there will be even less. The Dutch are shutting down production, Norway's fields are drying up ... All these pipelines from Middle-earth - the volumes will not block ... Everyone has counted everything for a long time ...

    I propose this sanction: Prohibit the pipelayer Fortuna from pulling the Keystone pipeline from Canada to the USA! And as soon as they cannot last it - let's say that our sanctions work like clockwork!
    Moreover, the pipeline runs by land, and the administration of Bidon has already banned it. and psaki advised dismissed workers to "just find another job." So don't risk anything

    Nice winter. Everything falls into place: Greta goes to school, LNG from the US goes to Southeast Asia, our gas goes to the EU (I would add Miller to social security, but hardly ...). Nice winter. Gas carriers from America "with songs" slipped past freezing Europe and even the price of 700 in Spain, and even 330 in Holland - did not deceive, excuse me, goofs, there in Southeast Asia - 1000 each. Is it just more expensive, isn't this "democratic values ​​- FREEDOM of trade, freedom of choice! We in Russia supply freezing people with stoves, generators, blankets, clothes, food, and the "fathers of democracy" - gas for 1000 or, like in Texas, electricity for 900 per month (instead of the usual 50-70). it's great to freeze freely in Texas than to be rotten on a computer in a warm apartment in a conditional totalitarian Tomsk ... Therefore, only sanctions against Russia. They don't need to sell their LNG (63% of LNG in the US is shipped on FOB (free on board) i.e. amers don't give a damn about where the gas carriers will go), they need to prevent Russia from making money and reduce Germany's competitiveness, hiding behind "concern for poor transit countries" like Poland-Ukraine.
