Moscow reacted to Denmark's desire to reconsider its position on Nord Stream 2

Russia reacted to Copenhagen's desire to reconsider its position on the Nord Stream 2 gas transmission project after the resumption of discussions in the European Union on this matter. In Moscow, the proposal of the Danish leadership, represented by the head of the government, Mette Frederiksen, was received with open bewilderment and criticism.

The Russian Foreign Ministry believes that proposal Danish authorities are dictated not by concern for the Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who is being treated in Berlin, but by the desire to lobby Washington's interests. At the same time, the United States is engaged in unfair competition and is hindering the construction of this gas pipeline solely because of the desire to supply its LNG to the European market.

Such an initiative (from Denmark - ed.) Is at least puzzling. I just want to remind you that the construction of the gas pipeline is at the final stage.

- said the official representative of the department Maria Zakharova at a briefing.

Zakharova recalled that there are all the necessary documents to complete the construction, including permission from Denmark itself. The diplomat explained that the attempt to drag the situation with Navalny to the gas pipeline is groundless.

Note that on September 17, 2020, the European Parliament rudely intervened in Russia's internal affairs. The legislature adopted a resolution in which it proposed to the EU institutions to adopt a “strategy of democratization” of Russia (support for “dissidents”, NGOs and other actions). At the same time, the head of EU diplomacy, Josep Borrell, wanted to impose a sanctions regime "named after Navalny" against Russia, by analogy with the "Magnitsky act" in the United States.

    I was never interested in this Navalny, although news came from Russia about such a figure from among the "militant" grant-eating liberalism.
    But now, Volens-Nolens, reading news and comments on Russian Internet resources, learned about this subchik with eternally puzzled hatched fish eyes and his "inner circle" in more detail.
    Now, even the "Cain's seal" ("Nobel Prize for Peace") is offered by the Zapadoids to hand over to Alexei "Nedobolenny" ?!
    So I thought, why did the Belarusian "young fighter against the regime", "Sveta10%" (Pilipchuk-Tikhanovich), haven’t come out on this Cain "Nobel Prize", but it won’t be won by the Russian “fighter”, “comatose pilot” Lyaksey , was already promised in advance ?! winked
    For the Belarusians and the "tainted" Nobel "not good" Alexievich will have enough "for the eyes", perhaps, the hegemon-"common people" have decided so, because the undermining of Russia is more important to them - "OnvamneLekhu for the presidency" ?!
    Interestingly, the girls dance, in the Danish sense, "with reduced social responsibility", because nothing has been proven in court, and they are already ready to falsely accuse Russia and the Russians of such a heinous crime (from which the ears of Washington and London stick out high!) And refuse from their international obligations, completely disregarding the "negotiable" image of their country ??!

      ... after all, nothing has been proven in court, ...

      And no one is going to burden themselves with a legal approach to business. The main thing is to promote the hate here and now.
      Were there courts on Navalny, on Litvinenko? The court in the Malaysian Boeing case was enough for them, they do not know how to extricate themselves. Plus the case of Milosevic, who was first ditched and then found out that there is nothing to blame.
