US Secretary of State: "In the event of a Russian attack on Ukraine, gas is unlikely to go through the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline"

53

The US authorities continue to intimidate Russia with "harsh measures" in the event of an "attack on Ukraine." A comment on this matter was made by the US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, who a few hours ago held a joint briefing with the head of German diplomacy, Annalena Berbock.


According to Blinken, "in the event of a Russian attack on Ukraine, the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is unlikely to work." The US Secretary of State added that the positions of Washington and Berlin are being coordinated "on the issue of European energy security."

Blinken:

Now gas does not flow through this pipeline. And it is unlikely that he will go through the pipe in the event of a Russian attack on Ukraine. Russia can use gas as a tool to influence Europe. But Europe can also use this tool against Russia.

Blinken's statements are commented on in Germany and Ukraine. In particular, attention is drawn to the term “unlikely”. This, as noted, can only say one thing: at the moment, Washington themselves do not even know if the US has any leverage over Russia.

Ukrainian experts, assessing the words of the head of the American State Department, express an opinion that boils down to the following: a major American official made it clear that even if the "invasion of Ukraine" takes place, no one in the West will give any guarantees that Russia will be banned from selling fuel to Europe maybe. If gas and oil cease to flow from the Russian Federation to Germany, this will lead to the collapse of the German, and indeed the entire European, economy. And with the rapid rise in energy prices, Europe can expect what is happening in Kazakhstan today.

    And the dog is with him with this stream.
    For 30 years without Soviet power, two streams have already stretched through the Baltic and two through the Black Sea and two to China.
    And the Kostroma region has not been fully supplied with gas. And it never will.
    Your people need to pull gas first! And reasonably priced. IMHO.

      Gas for SP-2 will go in any case... It is a matter of time, reason and, finally, elementary money.

        Stopudovo will go.
        And it won't go to the Kostroma region. For there is no pipe.

      From July 1, let's see how much "reasonable prices" for gas have risen, together with housing and communal services. Tomorrow, for the first time after the New Year, I'll go and see how "reasonable" gasoline costs after the New Year.

Chukhloma was a cold toilet, and a new building was erected, as in Makaryev ... Or do you propose to gasify the village in two yards?

      Because Capitalism is profit from everything at any cost. And what you can't cash in flies into the trash like the Kostroma region and the whole of the Russian Federation in general.

      For me, this does not sound like a warning, but as a command to the pocket regime in Kiev to act. Like: "Fas, guys" Coupled with all the previously made statements, saber rattling at our borders, it all looks like this. Zelka, of course, understands the owner's command, but he scores for now.

    If we attack Ukraine, gas in general will not go to Europe in any way. We can supply remote heating not only to Europe, but also personally to Blinkin at home. With a cry for free, everything is paid. Like Blinkin's comment, this is mine. Up to this level I have to to go down.

    Very, very often they repeat about the alleged Russian attack on Ukraine, apparently, oh, how much they are afraid of this. And it seems to me with this howl they show their weak point, that it’s a pity to lose. But this is an excellent training ground where meat for slaughter is grown and trained. for the Maidans throughout the CIS and Russia, including, and they are fed by Russia, which they are learning to kill. through our trophy gas pipeline, the industry of all of Europe will stop and stand up to 2% and the people will begin to freeze en masse. Well, or, as an alternative, go to jump and burn tires to keep warm, but there unfortunately democratic policemen will kill them.

By the way, the fall of enterprises has already begun. Amer slate is clearly not enough for them. Gazprom has already refused European countries, long-term contracts with which ended at the end of 21, to renew contracts at the old prices. Evriks cannot refuse from our gas, from the word at all.

    belay Insanity grows stronger not only in Biden but also in his apparatus. fool In the event of a Russian attack on Ukraine, gas will go through the pipe through Ukraine. But Europe will talk about KU for a long time! and slap your ears on your cheeks. And we will think for a week (until the cucumbers in European stores reach crystal transparency repeat ) where to start up the gas, to the east, or to the west? recourse Problems of gas pipelines, these are the problems of yesterday, today the question is: where are the firewood from?

    It's clear. The United States took Putin by the pipe and blackmail goes on in full. And the money used to show off the elite of the Russian Federation, oh, how much they need - the maintenance of one palace in Gelendzhik is worth a lot. And there will be more than a dozen of such palaces throughout the Russian Federation. Moreover, in addition to the raw materials of the Russian Federation over the 30 years of Putin's rule, there is nothing to export: the military-industrial complex and Roskosmos are chewing on the latest Soviet developments, there is nowhere to take new ones - science in the Russian Federation is completely destroyed by Putin, instead of the Academy of Sciences - FANO is selling the assets of the USSR Academy of Sciences to the hucksters, because salaries of specialists and hard workers flee from the military-industrial complex to China, space salaries - only from "effective" top managers like Rogozin, who are successfully mastering the remaining budget billions in the sand.

    Putin made a big mistake - instead of an instrument of profit and energy control of Europe, Nord Stream 2 turned into a long-term construction and an instrument of blackmailing the Russian Federation by the United States and Germany.
    This means that wealthy Germany does not really need this pipe - if it is completely tight, they will start up their nuclear power plants again, and the terminals for receiving American and Qatari LNG have already been built. The gas pipeline from Norway to Swinemunde will soon be completed.
