MFA: US crosses “landmark” in sanctions against Europe


Recently we Reportedhow Washington imposed sanctions against the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, through which blue fuel should be supplied from Russia to Germany via the Baltic bottom. And so, the Russian Foreign Ministry commented on the introduction by the Americans of sanctions against their own allies.


It should be noted that in Berlin, too, with perplexed watching what is happening, because even during the years of the Cold War Germany (Germany) received gas from the USSR. However, they cynically respond to this from Washington that at that time the United States had not yet traded in its liquefied natural gas (LNG).

We are watching with interest how the USA crosses the landmark line in the external policystarting to impose sanctions, which Russia has long been accustomed to, against its own allies. This is exactly what is stipulated by the law of December 20 on spending on US military needs in 2020, which contains a section on the protection of European energy security

- said in a comment by the Russian Foreign Ministry.

It is clarified that in this matter, the desire to harm Russian exports from the United States is not the main thing. This clearly shows Washington’s desire to impose its expensive LNG on Europe, instead of cheap pipeline gas from Russia. By this, the Americans are trying to undermine the competitiveness of Europeans in world markets. Naturally, Europe is not enthusiastic about this.

The Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized that the sanctions mentioned above primarily concern not Russian companies, but European companies that participate in the laying of the gas pipeline. Thus, in Washington, for the sake of geopolitical ambitions and commercial gain, they decided to sacrifice their closest NATO partners.

At the same time, the ministry added that Russia has both implemented and will continue to implement its economic projects regardless of anyone’s sanctions (restrictions and ambitions). The Russian Foreign Ministry is watching with interest how real and independent the countries of Europe are, which Washington forces to finance US interests.

      Are you talking about the politics of Europe? If yes, then the European Union is a tryndet, since "Forgive God" does not live long, either HIV ... or the pimps end them. The prospect, I must say, is not so hot.

    What kind of independence of Europe can we talk about if there are people at the levers of government that are devoted to the interests of hegemony with brainwashed while studying in the tin? In a good way, it would be necessary to pass laws prohibiting such potential saboteurs from holding public office!

    With interest we observe how the USA crosses the landmark

    Unlikely with interest. Rather - with a 3-story mat and kicking stuffed trump and all the congressmen combined. But there is nothing to oppose to this anyway. AND this is an indicator of the difference in calibers of the USA and the Russian Federation.

    ... starting to type sanctions, which Russia has long been accustomed toagainst own allies

    She got used to it, or not, but they annoy her more and more. And again, everyone has long known that the United States is no friend of Russia. But they did not bother to prepare for a possible "cold" confrontation. All pipes were pulled, mundials were carried out, and the "grandmothers" were offshorized.
    The result is natural (including - for all the minusers of this and other such comments).

      I am your personal minuser ... I love to minus such liars as you .... regardless of the outcome.)))
      And according to the article, let's see what will happen next ... it is obvious - the implementation of SP-2 is postponed for six months ... which is not so critical ... the war continues.
