Russia, Germany and France - a new alliance?

Russia, Germany and France - a new alliance?Germany and Russia, these two states separate, like a chasm, historical facts, the First and Second World Wars can not be erased from memory, but today we can say that Berlin and Moscow extended each other a hand of friendship and, according to Western analysts, this friendship has a chance of life. This week, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and this is another confirmation that these two states can soon create a new tandem in Europe, which will eclipse all existing alliances and alliances with its economic power. One of the first states that realized this was France, whose government has recently demonstrated its good attitude to the Russian side, as evidenced by the sale of two Mistral class ships.


The field for cooperation between Germany and Russia is really great. In particular, today, when Russia is rich in natural resources, it is considering options for allocating free money. And there is a powerful resource center - Germany, which is looking for investors who are seduced by its goal of total domination in Europe. Stunning partnership perspective!

Trying not to miss your chance and France. Approved by her government, the sale of Mistral-class ships, according to Stratfor, is “the most significant transfer of advanced Western military technology to Russia since the end of the terrible Second World War.”

This is only a small part of the new European alliance, which may well become revolutionary in modern geopolitics. Paris joins Berlin in its separation from the influence of US foreign policy and instead is heading towards the eternal ideological enemy - Russia.

Western Europe realized that Russia controls a significant part of its gas supplies, back in the 2006 year. Recall, then, in the middle of a cold winter, Moscow cut off gas to neighboring Ukraine in an attempt to make the necessary concessions from it with a similar “baseball bat”. Soon the whole of Europe felt this “gas” blow.

In order to avoid this in the future, Europe quickly began to look for ways to get rid of the habit of "unstable" Russian gas. The enthusiasm for the Nabucco project, which envisages the laying of a gas pipe through Turkey, which will supply natural gas directly from the Caucasus, bypassing Russia, has increased.

But this plan will not be implemented, and this is a fact. Cause? Germany. Instead of finding ways to overcome Russia, Berlin decided, on the contrary, to join it. Now Germany is turning into a huge gas hub from Russia, and at the same time receives a part of Russian power. Despite objections from literally all other countries located on the shores of the Baltic, Germany and Russia completed the construction of a new underwater 5 miles pipeline in May of this year on 760. According to the developed schedule, it should be launched this fall, and the second additional parallel pipe will be completed later.

The new gas pipeline gives more influence to both Russia and Germany. Moscow will be able to cut the supply of natural gas to Eastern Europe, while not ceasing its supply to Western Europe through Germany’s partner. This means that it has the ability to bring the states of Eastern Europe to their knees and at the same time maintain excellent relations with the West. Meanwhile, Berlin will be able to control the current supply of natural gas in Western Europe.

Across Western Europe, states refuse dangerous nuclear energy. These states will almost certainly be forced to look for a replacement for their own atomic energy, and it will be replaced by natural gas, possibly in the short term. First of all, it is easily accessible and pollutes the atmosphere much less than the same coal or oil. The International Energy Agency (MAE) recently predicted the approach of the “golden age of gas”. As a result, it means more influence and power for Russia and Germany.

France also hopes to fully participate in the processes. 20 July Russia gave the green light to the French energy giant, Total, by allowing it to join the most important Russian gas project - the development of the Yamal. This Russian peninsula is the focus of the greatest natural gas reserves in the world, and Russia will have to develop this area if it wants to continue to dominate the Western European market for natural gas supplies.

But with the development of the Yamal Peninsula is associated with a large number of problems. It is located north of the Arctic Circle and turns into a continuous swamp in summer, for this reason, drilling is possible only in dark winter. Total has vast technical expertise that is essential for the successful implementation of the project.

Given the desire of Germany and France to be friends with Russia, this will undoubtedly cause a negative reaction in the United States. And it is necessary to recognize that the reasons for Americans to worry about their influence on the states of Western Europe really are. Perhaps this was the reason for the statements of some American congressmen about the revision of the program “reset” relations with Russia. As you know, several days ago, open accusations were heard from the White House against the Russian government in destroying democracy in the country, and some Russians were banned from entering the US, accused of involvement in the death of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky.

    The American elite flashed, now they will begin to twitch in all directions, both political and economic. It is good that such an industrial giant as Germany, having thought well, decided to go closer to Russia, this is a very huge potential for the economic growth of Germany and Russia! I believe that behind the economic benefits, someday close military cooperation will come! It’s time to understand that Russia is not a threat to the West, we have no goal to capture the whole world ...)))

    This topic has been smoked for a long time, only the Germans and French are not the same as they were at the beginning of the last century. In those and others, in its own Chechnya, it is brewing only on a national scale.
    So today the site opened, this article, then "The question of creating a union state - Russia, Belarus and South Ossetia" was raised, does Russia have a complex of loneliness? Some strange projections from the series "Well, if the fish had fleas, then we would pile on everyone."
    The Germans have never been Russian friends, the French either. Militarily, they are not like a nation both! Politically - why the hell are we all surrendering to them with our problems! They depict friendship while gas runs at a price lower than for Belarus. Or does someone in their right mind think that they will confront the United States for the next 20 years?

        And you read about their adventures in Afghanistan, when they refused to even leave the tank outside the fortress and had to be strengthened by the Americans and the British.

    I see no reason for pride. The fact that Europe is hooked on Russian gas is not surprising, you get used to it quickly! But why doesn’t your people enjoy a normal standard of living? The same gas has not been brought to every village and it costs more than it should and should Is it worth something? IT SHOULD BE FREE, because no one will burn it simply because it’s free! Just remember this spring: it’s more profitable to drive oil over the hill, and the Russians otso .... those! madhouse. Here and here, only Gazprom executives will benefit from gold toilets

    I was here the other day with an Englishman from Speedfam (over a cup of coffee) talking about polishing machines. So he said that in the USSR it was forbidden to sell these machines. To my question, how to understand that we have these machines since the time of the Union? He answered, “The West Germans sold it to you.” Here is such an incident.

        Production of laser equipment, optics - dual-use technologies. It used to be forbidden to sell in the USSR.

    By the way, today American exchanges crashed by 5%, almost all. This is actually 2 news, good and bad. It’s good that the United States will go into a saving mode and probably wage a couple of wars. The bad thing is that these same indices almost directly reflect oil prices, and oil - for gas ..

    These are the same Germans who will not see us, but I am completely silent about the French. They are part of NATO and at the moment we are rivals, the French consider themselves better than the Russians, they think that they have an army and economy stronger. (Economy yes but no army, maybe already yes, the French also have yao) but as for the mistral, they don’t want to lose money, because this is labor, + they develop their own military-industrial complex

      Salvage will make everyone kind and tolerant, everyone will take from this union what he needs.
      Many people work at work they don’t like and hate it with all their heart, but for good money they are ready to work on it, all their life

    Of course, all of them are not allies to us yet!
    So far, they are NATO members and allies of the United States. But everything is changing and there is movement towards each other! I am sure that France, Russia and Germany do not have any contradictions, but only common interests - they need natural resources - which they can now obtain with mutual benefit. Russia needs technology and freedom from "dollar slavery" - and leaving the zone of Germany and France is more attractive.
    In the future, the prospect of a political rapprochement will appear - these trends are not encouraging for Anglo-Saxons and Masons.
    The demilitarized zone of friendship and mutual benefit is what we must turn Europe from a terrible aggressive NATO. And against the United States and China, have sufficient containment potential. But at the same time restore most of the Union.

      Frogs are a fact, when they were not and will not be our allies. For momentary benefit, they will smile and share frogs, but they will always keep a fig in their pocket in stock. The Teutons - these BROTHERS will be more gracious, more straightforward. You can and should be friends with them - less shit in the stash. Although fühller smeared shit on the nation, it seems that the nation thoroughly realized this.

    Now they will begin to lower me below the plinth, but I believe that the 1st half of the XNUMXth century, when Russia and Germany torn each other to shreds, is wild historical nonsense! On this subject is ready to discuss with anyone! Good night everybody.

      ================
      Yeah they can - the hope melts last :))))) "bursts" which only PROJECTS do not compose in their flawed heads. What else is the "alliance" in general? The Alliance can be one - Russia is a raw materials appendage of technologically developed Europe - and no more.

    The United States will not allow any alliances, be it economic or political. Merkel is constantly reminding from Washington that she is loyal to Russia. The United States needs an obedient Germany and not a strong Russia! And Russia itself (in the wake of the USSR) is ideally suited for the role "external enemy."

    There will be no alliance! Neither Franks nor Teutons will resist the pressure of the Americans. They will bend and lie down, they will lie down as they are nice, and they will smile!
