Merkel will not tolerate American pressure on Nord Stream 2


Recently we Reportedwhat vigorous activity the "partners" of Russia from Washington began to show about the "Nord Stream-2". And now, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has already responded to attempts by US lawmakers to sanction this gas pipeline. After that, the largest German daily tabloid newspaper Bild (“Bild” - “picture, image”) called Merkel’s statement “a declaration of war” to US President Donald Trump.


The publication reports that Merkel “in clear words” made it clear to Trump that he would not tolerate further US attempts to interfere with the implementation of the gas transmission project, which enjoys its support.

We are against extraterritorial sanctions, and not since yesterday, we faced a similar problem in the context of Iran. I do not see any other options than to conduct decisive negotiations (with the USA - ed.) That we do not accept this practice of extraterritorial sanctions

- said Merkel,

The publication believes that, despite the actions of the Americans, it will not be possible to stop the project worth about 10 billion euros at the finish line, and it will be successfully completed soon. It is specified that more than 2100 km of pipes have already been laid at the bottom of the Baltic Sea (each “string” of 1200 km). It remains to lay, in total, about 300 km of pipes.

At the same time, the publication does not exclude that due to US sanctions, the completion of work and the commissioning of the gas pipeline may be slightly delayed. It is also possible that Russia may have to look for new special pipe-laying vessels to complete the work.

It should be added that at the same time Germany was openly talking about the introduction of duties on American reduced natural gas (LNG). In addition, Merkel does not exclude that the restrictions that the United States may impose on Nord Stream-2 may adversely affect negotiations on gas transit between Moscow and Kiev. Merkel clarified that the talks "are pretty encouraging."

<...> And in this regard it would be unfavorable if Ukraine did not receive transit fees, because the negotiations would be complicated, because we, on the other hand, have this position on Nord Stream-2

- said the Chancellor of Germany.

By the way, in Berlin they expect a “New Year present” from Washington in the form of sanctions by the end of this year.

    - Everything turns out exactly the way .. as I personally expected ...
    - To my very bitter regret ... -Now, Gazprom (Russia) itself will be forced to build pipelines ... and keep them in good condition ...
    - Here it is ...- an ugly trap (one of the traps) ... And what else is this .... -

    It is also possible that Russia may have to look for new special vessels - pipe layers to complete the work.

    - How easy and simple ...- Gazprom will pay ... And who today, in general, “really” runs Gazprom ...
    - It seems that Gazprom today is becoming more and more ... a slave to the lamp ...- oh ...- well, of course ...- "a pipe slave" ... - It remains only to fulfill the conditions and requirements (they and penalties, and all kinds of legal costs) ...
    - And what Merkel says today ...

    Merkel in “clear words" made it clear to Trump that he would not tolerate further US attempts to interfere with the implementation of the gas transportation project, which enjoys its support.

    - But this is nothing more than an ordinary ostentatious trick ... -Well, Germany must justify the money invested in the pipe ... -And Germany must begin to receive Russian gas from this pipe ...
    - But then it will be possible and again to return to good relations with the United States (yes, they will remain good today) ...
    - Yes, and then ...- with whom did Merkel intend to ally in a “confrontation” with Trump ???
    - Where are her "allies" in this matter .. ??? - They just don't ... - Is Zap going to? Europe (represented by Germany) file a lawsuit with the court of arbitration ... on ... on ... on ... USA ??? -Yes, all of America will laugh for a week ... - It can easily be sued in Russia ... and America is just Zap. Europe is too tough ...
    - And ... as I personally said many times ... -Today, gas transit through the territory of Ukraine is simply necessary for Russia ... -It is a pity that Russia has not found a way to reach the Ukrainian leadership with a counter proposal to conclude new gas transportation agreement through Ukraine ...
    - In vain Russia dragged it on ... - time works against Gazprom and Russia ...

      Transit through Ukraine - no-nonsense! For now Azerbaijan’s TANAP has been added, which is minus 10 billion cubic meters from transit. TP - minus 30 billion from transit. In these conditions, even SP-2 is not needed. More precisely, it is needed as a backup in case of accidents.
      And Gazprom was forbidden to lay pipes. For - they still confiscate.

      I agree with you completely! Russia in the person of its president is rushing with these gas pipelines, like that brick seller in Odessa:

      Seller: - Uncle, buy a brick.
      Passer-by: - ​​Why do I need a brick?
      Seller: - Buy it or get it on the head.

        In the place of that seller you were? Well, you write in detail, apparently, you are well acquainted with such realities and have repeatedly used them in your activity, that is why the Soviet trade of such a “specialist” has lost in your face. bully
        But in essence - what does it matter to those living in Kazakhstan or Ukraine - it doesn’t matter to me - the main thing is NOT in Russia, to what and how OUR state does ??? To whom you DO NOT have any relationship for a long time, and thank God that you do not - I don’t even wish such an neighbor to the enemy. hi

          Why in Kazakhstan and why in Ukraine, literate, however, imprisoned in propaganda. (I will not correctly call it - this has become a spiteful word for Ukraine). Like Putin, for example, is afraid to name Navalny. I wish there were two of them for open and free (from sneaky) televised debates ... where in the first round (3 minutes), an irreplaceable one would have to be picked out due to the baseboard. This is with his toadies he played a mastiff in giveaways (and according to the first, he had no more than 5 minutes' vocabulary, after which he immediately blushed, became angry and switched to blatnyak). Then the press still had the remainder of free "swimming", which he later successfully corrected.
          Correctly speaking, I have no relation to you. That's when you become normal, then everyone will be in a good relationship with you!

            It’s good that you personally don’t have anything to do with us, but as for the “they will” - why are you and people like you? Once again trying to tell you how once upon a time did you live badly? And to whom is it so interesting? bully It’s NOT even remembering that you often write bullshit here ...
            And we’ll completely manage without you, and then we’ll do it, if you (all) would not have climbed the forums here, in general beauty would have been. hi

    Merkel is a selling skin (I won’t be surprised if it is discovered that she was recruited by the KGB and now has reached the finish line of her assignment for the collapse of the EU and the FRG), like Schroeder and other oil and gas money fed from the USSR / Russia! There is enough oil and gas in the markets; the Germans are financing the Russian aggression with enviable tenacity! It turns out, as in the year 18, when the Brest Peace was signed, Lenin said that "we will buy from them a rope on which we hang them." What then happened, in 19 the "reddened" Germans overthrew their Kaiser and established Soviet power. But there the "white" officers fell behind the machine guns and shot the "red plague"!
