“The war will begin”: experts on possible provocations against Nord Stream-2


After washington introduced sanctions against Nord Stream-2, political scientists in Russia and Germany talked about possible provocations, sabotage, acts of sabotage and even terrorist attacks aimed at hindering the implementation of this gas transportation project. For example, your comments on an online publication Ukraine.ru were given by the German political scientist Alexander Rar and his Ukrainian-Russian colleague, columnist of the Russia Today MIA Rostislav Ishchenko.


According to Rahr, opponents of the specified gas pipeline can switch from political and legal methods of counteracting construction to various physical actions. After all, the gas pipeline should link Moscow and Berlin for many years, and certain forces that might even decide on a war are not interested in this.

This is my wild assumption, absolutely unrealistic, because in my worst dream I can’t imagine that this is possible. But judging by the absolutely fierce state of the American elites, the sentiments against this historic project that would connect Germany and Russia, this cannot be ruled out ... If this happens, there will be a war ... Something can happen by chance. Provocations are very easy to do ...

- said Rar.

As an example of such a provocation, a German political scientist cited a recent doping scandal, due to which WADA did not allow Russian athletes to the Olympics. He recalled that the Swiss-Dutch company Allseas Group SA (a marine contractor specializing in laying subsea pipelines, installing and dismantling offshore platforms and underwater construction) immediately stopped the construction of Nord Stream-2, after the entry into force of US sanctions. Therefore, further provocations cannot be ruled out.

In turn, according to political analyst Ishchenko, sabotage and terrorist attacks on the Nord Stream-2 can lead to war, so Washington, with a high degree of probability, will not decide on them.

The fact that there may be terrorist attacks on the pipeline, I doubt very much. No, terrorist attacks are possible everywhere and always, but I doubt that the United States will decide on this. Because this is international terrorism and this is a declaration of war

- explained Ishchenko.

Ishchenko believes that in the event of a terrorist attack on Nord Stream-2, Moscow may take retaliatory measures. Moreover, the conflict between the two nuclear powers certainly does not bode well.

    The Americans themselves with the British will never climb into the noose, find some kind of environmental radicals, or as if ISIS (banned in the Russian Federation). Gentlemen are not accustomed to dirty their hands, moreover, this will indicate too much to whom it is beneficial. Provocations against the project will not be sought as straightforward as a terrorist attack or an attack by the pipe layers.

    Terrorist attacks are possible anywhere, including on the Ukrainian pipe, and then Russia will refer to force majeure without supplying part of the gas to the EU, and expensive LNG from the United States will affect the final products of this EU and the whole world will switch to Asian products. And having lost the market once, it is difficult to squeeze back into it. You won’t enter the same river twice ...

    Interestingly, will our government sue Nord Stream 2 AG, which built the SP-2? After all, this is simply a disregard for the contract, they just picked it up and left without completing it. Turn to the courts and sue them for a lot of money, and it will be good for us and others to think a hundred times before listening to orders from americosia. But we have some sort of suspicious silence. It seems like nothing happened.

      Do you think the contract did not provide for such a development of the situation? There are no idiots.

        Personally, I think that the Swiss boldly quit the job on the orders of the Americans, knowing that the Russian government would never sue them. They will not want to quarrel with Switzerland. Switzerland is the main repository of funds (that which has been acquired by excessive labor) of officials, deputies, oligarchs, and this is much more important than some kind of pipe, and they do not care about Russia and the whole people. People will not be impoverished, they think. Now, if they had not built the pipe with state money, but with their own money, then they would have run to the courts, stumbling.

      And who are the judges? - yeah, without a flag and a hymn and in the COURT? - and they: who are you? - Do you remember a devoted USSR more than once or twice, did you think gas and oil to help us? - like a classic:

    Yes, it’s enough to scare the war already, you’re tired ... You want a war, get it, only then don’t cry ... Nobody will forever give in to the Wishlist of Washington and its sixes.

    - they themselves carry garbage, they themselves immediately refute it.

    This is my wild assumption, absolutely unrealistic, because in my worst dream I can’t imagine that this is possible.

    - at least a person adequately evaluates himself. And this is, albeit weak, but a prerequisite for recovery.

      Canada produces a lot of natural gas. States are happy to buy this gas from Canada. All gas goes through gas pipelines, more precisely, 93% of Canadian gas goes to the United States through gas pipelines. Australia also produces a lot of gas and Australia sells it to the whole world, but sells it in a liquefied state. Why? Because you need to look at the geographical map, and then it becomes clear that building gas pipelines from Australia .... let's say that China is crazy too. I clearly explained why LNG is beneficial for someone, and pipeline gas for someone?

      No, gorenina91! Pipelines and only pipelines! But only within the borders of Russia and for the needs of the people. And selling gas abroad almost for nothing to enrich a negligible percentage of the population and the West is a state crime!

    I doubt that Moscow would take such a response even in the event of a real terrorist attack.
    When in Syria the United States "banged" the "Wagnerians", Moscow in response tossed the United States with Calibers and Vanguards?
    So here.
    Well, yes, what is there to listen to Ischenko, this runaway polit-emigrant-itiot.
