Berlin offered Washington a deal in exchange for Nord Stream 2

The German government has offered the United States a deal worth 1 billion euros in exchange for waiving sanctions on Nord Stream 2 - the money the Germans will invest in the construction of two terminals for receiving American LNG. The newspaper Die Zeit reported this on September 16, citing its sources.

In response to German investment, the United States will allow the unhindered completion and use of Nord Stream 2

- writes the head of the Federal Ministry of the Federal Republic of Germany Olaf Scholz in a letter to his American colleague Steven Mnuchin.

Earlier, the government of the Federal Republic admitted the idea of ​​stopping the construction of the pipeline. Chancellor Angela Merkel, during a closed meeting with representatives of parties in parliament, expressed the idea that the fate of SP-2 should be decided at the European level.

Against the background of the poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny and his treatment at the Berlin clinic "Charite" in Germany, many began to talk about the undesirability of the Gazprom project. Nevertheless, there are still more supporters of Nord Stream 2 in the ruling circles of Germany than of its opponents. In this regard, many are interested in the question of why the story with Navalny coincided with the period when the question of completing the construction of the gas pipeline is being decided. A ban on SP-2 could be costly for Germany's energy security.

    Yes, understand Nord Stream 2 Germany is needed in order to influence other countries. She does not need gas from this pipe. She finally wants to go to green energy by the age of 30. But transit from the Nord Stream 2 pipe will go to Austria and further to the south of Europe. And Germany wants to have influence on them, otherwise they are very spoiled and they do not carry money to Germany))) Forget that they are for our sake, or that they cannot live without her.

    Well, nakra they from the United States bargain for what is better for her. This is a stupid element of bargaining. But for us it is billions of dollars buried in the sea.
