Germany responded to sanctions against Nord Stream 2


Recently reported as German Chancellor Angela Merkel reacted on attempts by US lawmakers to impose restrictions on the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline and what the US introduced sanctions on this gas transportation project, halting its final implementation. And so, on December 21, 2019, the German government issued an official statement on this subject.


The statement said that Berlin took note with regret of the entry into force of the sanctions initiated by the US Congress against Nord Stream 2 and Turkish Stream. The Germans believe that the restrictions are Washington’s interference in European affairs. Then they reminded that they reject "such extraterritorial sanctions."

They affect German and European companies and constitute interference in our internal affairs.

- said in a statement posted on Twitter account of the representative of the German government Ulrike Demmer.

It should be added that sanctions on “flows” are recorded in the US defense budget for 2020 and have already been signed by the owner of the Oval Office in the White House. The fiscal year in the United States begins on October 1 of the previous year.

We remind you that before this, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said that European energy issues should be resolved in Europe, and not in the United States. Then he clarified that the German government was in talks with the United States, trying to convince the Americans to abandon the sanctions.

    Again, the author gives out the desired (he, probably, ukroshumer) for the real. There is no agreement yet, but the author already knows in advance what the terms of the agreement will be, awarding the victory to Zelensky. In fact, the contract, if concluded, will be beneficial to Gazprom and Russia.

    This is your post a week ago!
    Where have you gone, "forum analyst"? Where are your "clever" comments on this article?
    The author of the article that you criticized so much can count and analyze, unlike you!
    "Washed" the national property in full, YES YET YOU HAVE STILL PAY BY COURT !!!
    All the "feats" of Gazprom and its lawyers in Europe will be paid for by us, the Russians. Let's see against the background of what is happening, Miller will reduce his salary or his 13th and write out to his accomplices. laughing

    Germany responded to sanctions against Nord Stream 2

    - But how did Germany and others "reacted" ... - who cares ... - Germany "reacted", and Gazprom (or rather, the Russian taxpayer) will have to pay ...
    - For a year now, personally, I've been writing about various kinds of traps where Gazprom "squeaks, but climbs" ...
    - And how does site plankton respond to my comments ??? -Hahah ...
    - Even when all my predictions began to come true, then even here ... here ... here ... here these site-related empty chimes did not even find the courage to apologize to me or at least admit their wrong ... -Yes .. where there ... -the whole cowardly brother continues in the same vein ...
    - Okay, this is an empty matter ...- appeal to the conscience of those ... who do not have one ...
    - What's next???
    - And then ...- here ...

    ... German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said that European energy issues should be addressed in Europe, and not in the United States. Then he clarified that the German government was in talks with the United States, trying to convince the Americans to abandon the sanctions.

    - Ha-ha-ha ... This is the same as appealing to the conscience above "those I mentioned" ... -the same empty exercise ...
    - As for the Americans, then ... then ... then ... the way it says "... Trump starts and ... and Trump wins ..." - that's all there is ...
    - As I personally wrote many times ... -Gazprom fell into rather primitive traps ...- -And exactly ..:
    - When will it be possible to finish and launch the SP-2 and Turkish Stream gas pipelines ... - today no one knows ... - You can only "make forecasts" on this score ... - And this is Zap. Europe is still pretending that it is ostensibly against US sanctions and not "against" Gazprom (Russia) ... -And already tomorrow ... -the same Zap. Europe will ask very strictly from Gazprom: "Where is your gas promised under the contract ????" ... -And this is called "arrived" ...
    - And when I personally wrote that ... what ... what ... that Gazprom just needs gas transit through the territory of Ukraine, then ... then ... then ... then the site's "clever people" almost on their do ... r ... n ... s heads did not go ... - so they wanted to show all their rage ... against the "Ukrainian pipe" ....
    - And when Gazprom was left at a broken trough, or rather, in front of the same Ukrainian gas pipe ... then all this audience quieted down and only slowly minus me and ... and more "no gu-gu" ...
    - And today Gazprom has no more "options", except for the Ukrainian gas pipeline ... - That's it ...
    - And tomorrow Zap. Europe will begin to make claims specifically to Gazprom ... - not to bring them to the United States ... -Gazprom will still have to (and will be forced to lower the price of gas) ...- Such a sad story ...
    - And in the East ..., for "such an occasion" ... - also China will take Gazprom "by the throat" ... - such are the things ...

      Again, write nonsense.
      They plan to launch the Turkish stream on January 8, and SP-2 by summer.

      What is it like! Have a trough? Gazprom signed a contract for transit to Europe on favorable terms. In addition, I also screwed Ukrainian consumers to myself. Nothing at all!

      belay recourse
      For the little informed, Gazprom is supplying gas to Europe by:
      1. SP-1
      2. Blue Stream
      3. Trans-Balkan gas pipeline
      4. Yamal - Europe (via Belarus)
      5. Urengoy-Uzhgorod (through Ukraine)
      6. Union (through Ukraine)
      7. Turkish stream (from January 8, 2020.)

        It’s hard to show the blind and explain to the deaf!
        What will they launch there on January 8? You do not disgrace at least.
        11 km, Karl !!! Only 11 km from the Turkish stream, the next 420 km in six months.

        The contract was concluded, as I suggested in my comment, on favorable terms for Gazprom and Russia.

        Rave!!! 65 billion cubic meters in 2020 and 40 billion each for the next 4 years, plus a fine of 2,9 billion dollars, and even persuade Ukrainians to buy cheap gas from us. wassat
        "Made" the national property to the fullest! After such failures, the entire board headed by the "great" Miller must resign, but he is irreplaceable, he is a friend of the Guarantor.
        The same "greats" in the government expect to sue 3 billion bins of Eurobonds through the "most honest" English court. laughing

            laughing You are probably a veteran - a Bolshevik, or a victim of the exam.
            But for the "very smart", I will make a discount on a free educational program.

            Construction work under the Balkan Stream pipeline project - the Bulgarian section of the gas pipeline IHP Bulgaria - Serbia - Hungary (South Stream lite) continues:
            - On October 11, 2019, the construction of 2 compressor stations (CS) began: Rasovo and Nova Provadia gas pipelines - the branch from the 2nd line of the main gas pipeline (MGP) Turkish Stream.
            - B. Borisov himself modestly reported on social networks on October 11, 20, about the completion of work on the 2019-kilometer section of the linear part of the IHL from the Turkish border to the Strandja CS
            With the linear part of the IHL Balkan Stream pipeline, everything is not so simple.
            According to IHL, starting from January 1, 2020, more than 12 billion m3 of Russian gas should have been delivered to Europe.
            By October 20, 2019, only 11 km of the 635 km of the Balkan Stream IHL route were built.
            As you know, a 5-month hitch came out with the contractor.
            Bulgaria will now definitely receive its 3,5 billion m3 / year of gas from 2 strands of IHL. The Turkish stream can not be said about Serbia, Hungary and Slovakia.
            But how to make up for lost 150 days of construction delays?
            Builders strive to lay about 3 km / day of the gas pipeline, so it will take 635 days to build 211 km, i.e. around June 1, 2020.

              For persons unspoiled by intelligence, I inform you that Turkish Stream and the Balkan Stream pipeline are not the same. A Turkish stream with a length of 930 km has already been built, 2 threads are filled with gas. Gas will go to Turkey on January 8, part of the gas from Turkey will go to Europe through the Bulgarians via the Balkan Stream pipeline, but that's another story.

                "Vumnik" decided to "jump off"! laughing What are two threads? Wake up!
                Gas will go to Turkey through the first line, the second is transit through Turkey-Bulgaria to Central Europe, which does not yet exist and will be in six months. At the moment, Blue Stream is 1% full, due to a drop in gas demand in Turkey, the same volume will be on the 50st line of the TP. Politics, Karl !!!
                The second line, 2 km readiness, will make it possible to receive gas from Bulgaria and supply it to Greece and Macedonia via "Soviet lines". Mustache !! The concert is over! Under the contract, Gazprom was supposed to fill the pipe from 11 to 1.01 and provide Serbia and other Central European countries. The Serbs will hand over their land plot before 20/31.12.19/1.06, the Bulgarians on June 2020, XNUMX, Hungary, Slovakia are in transit, and Gazprom would have gotten a serious penalty, so they made a compromise with the outskirts.

                  You already decide. Gas will go on TP or not. And yes, I did not touch on the supply volumes. You do not ascribe to me what I did not state.

        What summer! If the Swiss firm refuses to continue the work, they can use the "barge" "Fortune", but it does not have dynamic positioning, which allows you to hold in a given position, without it the Danes in their ter. the ship will not be allowed to water. The rate of laying is 1 km per day, there are more than 200 km left along two lines, add stormy weather, winter - spring.
        Under favorable circumstances, by fall, if you're lucky!

          Not 200 km, but significantly less. But, in any case, they will be in time for winter.

            I repeat the question. Who will build? The Swiss stopped. "Fortuna" is in a German port, and there are big doubts that the Danes will let him work in their waters, given its performance characteristics. Another vessel of ours, capable of carrying out such work, is located in the Far East and it takes 2 months to drive it, so count it.
