American edition: White House refused to impose sanctions against Nord Stream 2 AG

62

The United States will not impose sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 AG operator and its executive director, since they do not want to completely spoil relations with Germany. This is reported by Axios, citing two senior sources.


The White House came to the conclusion that stopping the construction of the gas pipeline, which is 95% ready, can only be imposed by imposing sanctions against recipients of Russian gas, which means imposing restrictions on Germany, which will finally spoil relations with it, which Washington is not ready to do. Therefore, there will be no sanctions against Nord Stream 2 AG, the State Department is ready to abandon them.

On the other hand, the United States is still against Nord Stream 2, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said. Therefore, to support its position, Washington will impose sanctions, but against the Russian ships involved in the construction. There is a strange situation when no sanctions are imposed against the pipeline itself and the company that builds it, but against the ships that build it - on the contrary.

Earlier, the United States warned that they were studying the organizations involved in the construction of the gas pipeline and were ready to impose restrictions on them.

In Germany itself, they said that the question of completing the construction of the gas pipeline depends only on the speed of laying the pipes, since all the permits necessary for this have been obtained.

Nord Stream 2 AG assured that Nord Stream 2 will be completed this year, despite all the obstacles.

              Everything is as predicted by smart experts: after seeing that the SP-2 necessarily will be completed in spite of their attempts to stop it, the Americans condescendingly "allow" it to be completed, without ceasing to sneak in every possible way and slow down!

              I wonder if the State Department will decide to use the last argument to disrupt the completion of construction and the launch of the SP-2, which is deadly for them: to throw ukrokamikaze into a suicidal attack on the LDNR?

              Not. The state takes abandoned children on your own full support. The task of the state is to give support to mothers in difficult financial situations. Dependents I can be mother, if the state completely takes over the maintenance of not only the child but also the mother. Are you ready to share your family budget with such mothers to whom we (the state) will have to pay the average salary in the region, provide housing and pay utility bills from our pockets for them? Are you ready to cut your income in half?

              The state does what it can. Let's launch "North Stream 2", our capabilities will expand.

                As soon as the question touched its own pocket, the brains immediately fell into place.

                If I had my way, I would have sent women with two or more children on a pension today, regardless of their age. Why? Yes, because with the increase in the retirement age, we already have a surplus of labor, which the Medvedevskys want to compensate for with a 4-day week, which does not resolve the issue of growing tension in society. The jobs are occupied by the elderly, and the youth are on the streets as the driving force behind all revolutions ...

      At the same time, the sanctions against the participants in the construction confirm the "split" (double standards), which speaks of "political schizophrenia" in the actions of the Yankes and Co.

      Perhaps the whole point is not in political relations with Germany, but the ability for American companies to suck on this very pipe and resell gas in Europe, or, even easier, to receive kickbacks. America does nothing for nothing.

Berbock said in an interview with Bild that low-cost airlines "should no longer exist in the future" .... the deputy chairman of the Bundestag parliamentary group from the CDU Ulrich Lange said that the ban on short-term flights is "the wrong approach." And FDP leader Marco Buschmann called Berbock's proposal an example of a "prohibitive fetish."

And Germany is not a monolith, but a "union of lands" which have their own views and their own authorities - Bavaria is. .., the Prime Minister of Saxony said that the joint venture needs to be completed, the Saxon Landtag advocated the completion of the construction of the gas pipeline.

    Earlier, the United States warned that they were studying the organizations involved in the construction of the gas pipeline and were ready to impose restrictions on them.

    In the United States, what is not familiar with the concept of "one-day firm"? With the authorized capital - an old computer in 2005 for 10 thousand rubles. And a staff of 1 person. in the face of the homeless Vasily, who put from the high bell tower on all their sanctions.

    The US still opposes Nord Stream 2
    And where should they go? You can't work back, because authority in the world is already spoiled. They threw gingerbread to the Germans, and they will continue to harm. But in Soviet times, too, they went out of their way to prevent Soviet gas from reaching Europe, but it didn't work out.

    Germany is fighting to the death for SP-2. Without cheap pipe gas, its economy is uncompetitive. Since it is very dangerous for the German political elite to reduce the costs of the economy not at the expense of cheap energy resources, but by reducing the material and social security of the population.

    Who does not have time to check the information - a quote for a "well-fed" and great "2018: st European Gas Analysis Mikhail Korchemkin. With reference to the official figures of the Russian gas company, Korchemkin calculated that the total cost of Nord Stream 2, taking into account the infrastructure Russian territory will amount to over 40 billion euros.

    The European project participants will finance only 9 billion of this amount. The figure of 9 billion is often featured in the press as the final cost of the gas pipeline, but this amount only covers the costs of the construction of the underwater section along the bottom of the Baltic Sea, Korchemkin noted. Gazprom will have to pay the main share of 31 billion euros out of its own pocket, but Korchemkin is confident that the Russian gas giant will pass part of the costs onto domestic consumers, which will increase gas prices inside Russia.®
