US Treasury imposed sanctions against Nord Stream 2

64

The United States imposed sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 under construction, and the operator Nord Stream 2 AG and its owner were not included in the list.


The US Treasury has expanded sanctions against the Russian gas pipeline, adding new ones to the restrictions already imposed. According to the published list, several Russian companies and vessels related to the construction of the gas pipeline fell under the new sanctions.

Thus, the US State Department kept its promise made last week that there will be sanctions against Nord Stream 2, but they will not affect the company itself, since Washington does not want to completely spoil relations with Germany. By imposing restrictions on Russian ships and companies, the United States has shown that it is still fighting the Russian gas pipeline, but at the same time, the imposed sanctions should not affect the construction of Nord Stream 2.

A report on the restrictions imposed has already been sent to the US Congress, which is what the American senators demanded. The next report on the measures taken against the Russian gas pipeline is due in August this year. So by that time, another batch of sanctions can be expected. Against whom they will be introduced is not yet clear, since all companies, ships and ships related to the construction have already been included in the sanctions list. And not only for Nord Stream 2, but also for Turkish Stream.

Meanwhile, not all American senators were satisfied with the proposed list. Earlier, a group of 12 people demanded to tighten the imposed sanctions, up to a complete stop of construction. The corresponding bill has already been submitted to the Senate.

        This is the essence of the political stability of the United States. Even if Zhirinovsky wins the next elections there, the country's course will not change dramatically. Sanctions against the Russian Federation will be introduced either by the Congress or the Senate or the Ministry of Finance. Stability.

        The grandfather is a stuffed president, he is almost incapacitated. Others rule there
        US President Joe Biden lost control of his car during an official visit to the plant. He was assisted by a security specialist, driving the vehicle with the second wheel.
        A funny incident occurred during a recent visit by the 46th President of America to a Ford facility where electric vehicles are assembled. There he was offered to evaluate a new car and ride it. In a video published by the Washington Post, the car can be seen turning in the opposite direction from where Biden was steering.
        As it turned out, the reason for this was the fact that, in fact, not the president, but his assistant, drove the transport. It is clarified that two steering wheels were installed in the car.
        While visiting the factory, Biden had another incident. During a speech to the workers, he stated that he began his political career about 200 years ago.
        “I stand here because about 180 years ago, when I was first elected to government, the auto workers union chose me,” the 78-year-old president said. As "Rambler" wrote, the workers laughed at him, but he still did not understand why. Reported by Rambler

      Where will they go? The spot price for LNG is already climbing to the ceiling both in Europe and Asia. The gas storages are empty, but we need to fill them with something for the winter. Gazprom waited for its finest hour. If not completed, the Germans will certainly find something to fill the storage facilities. But this will be the "golden" gas.

        so it was to take at least the end of October last year
        The clarifications relate to the provision on sanctions against foreign persons and companies who knowingly “provided vessels for the construction of the project” .... the Department of State expanded the interpretation of “providing vessels”, stating that the actions of companies providing various services for such vessels (for example , services for retrofitting or modernization or financing of such works). The State Department has given such companies 30 days, starting on October 20, in order to in good faith curtail such activities. https://www.rbc.ru/politics/20/10/2020/5f8ecf899a7947272d469043

      It was clear 2 years ago. that it will be completed anyway. There were less than 200 km of work to be laid in shallow water. More than 12 billion dollars of European money and more than 4 billion of our Gazprom have been invested in the pipeline. And that's the type of throw? Yeah, I do. Most likely, if the contract had not been reached with Ukraine, the stream would have started working already last year. And so there was no need to rush.

    laughing I will try to make out the latest sanctions point by point. 1 Marine Rescue Service, the sanctions are in effect only in the construction area. Hypothetically, they collide with each other more than once in the Black Sea, the missile cruiser Montreuil and Donald Cook begin to sink! A rescuer of the Marine Rescue Service is passing by, we are under sanctions, the rescue of the drowning is the work of the drowning themselves! Americans, so you are not under sanctions here, save us! Ours: The money is on the deck and we start with the rescue. In Russia, he is a monopoly. 2 Samara Heat and Power Fund. These have suffered the most. The management has money, but it is not possible to go abroad. But this is for now! 3 vessels together with Chersky. All built abroad have already undergone warranty repair. Their work in Russian waters is not measured. Especially in the Arctic.

    Well, Europe has also invested in pumping stations, the purchase of land, pipes and the construction of a ground extension in two lines through eastern Germany to the Czech Republic, then across the Czech Republic, and then from the Czech Republic to western Germany with a branch to the Netherlands and France. Costs are estimated at 8 billion, plus 4 billion for the Stream itself. In total, about 12 billion were thrown from bounty on the Russian political project. laughing

    Some kind of antics instead of deeds. Ukraine would have been paid 3,6% of its annual budget to compensate for transit revenues and the problem would be solved. What are these Europeans greedy and hypocritical.

    However, there is a small problem with the calculator. If the pipeline is cut off on the territory temporarily occupied by Ukraine, then the eastern regions will have to be supplied with gas on the reverse (moreover, real, and not virtual). And this is additional costs for maintenance and technical gas that will be burned in the compressors of pumping stations.

    So ukram should be immediately budgeted for 5% of subsidies from Europe. Better than 8,5%. So it will be good and fair. laughing

    By imposing restrictions on Russian ships and companies, the United States has shown that it is still fighting the Russian gas pipeline, but at the same time, the imposed sanctions should not affect the construction of Nord Stream 2.

    Without solid US sanctions, this is good, everyone sees this insanity - the pushing of their products with economic instruments and thinks (well, those that are not occupied and are not sucked in), is it worth interacting with them?
    The United States by such actions is dropping its image below the plinth.
    Well, the sanctions are useful to some extent - they sober some who tore their throats about the free market and democracy, plus we are starting to lay new production facilities.
