The Bundestag failed to decide the fate of Nord Stream 2

The deputies of the Bundestag of the Federal Republic of Germany could not decide and decide the fate of the Nord Stream 2 gas transmission project. At the meeting on September 18, 2020, two conflicting draft resolutions were presented at once, the state German international television and radio company Deutsche Welle reports.

The first draft was presented by the Soyuz-90 / Greens faction, and the second - by the Alternative for Germany. Environmentalists demanded to deprive the gas pipeline political support for Berlin, as it "splits" Europe, hurts European climate and energy goals, and "undermines Germany's strategic foreign policy sovereignty."

At the same time, the right-wingers demanded to support the completion of the gas pipeline by all means so that it would be put into operation as soon as possible. They justified their position on the energy security of Germany, since the country needs a lot of raw materials due to the closure of nuclear and coal-fired power plants. As a result, none of the projects was put to a vote. Legislators submitted both projects to the committee on the economy and energy.

According to the member of the Bundestag committee on international affairs Waldemar Gerdt from AfD, if Berlin refuses to implement the project, Germany will face legal claims in the amount exceeding 10 billion euros. He believes that Nord Stream 2 is not a Russian or German project, since more than 100 companies from all over Europe participate in it, which have already invested money, received the necessary permits, went through the necessary procedures and carried out some work.

Where will we get energy resources if we refuse from the most economically and environmentally advantageous offer that Russia has made to us for gas?

- asked Gerdt during an interview RIA News".

He clarified that the security and competitiveness of Germany is under threat due to unfounded accusations against the specified project. In his opinion, a "dirty fight" is being waged with the gas pipeline using political and economic pressure. The US wants to squeeze out cheap Russian gas from Europe and supply its expensive LNG, as a result of which prices in Germany will rise by at least 20%.

    Trump as he could "delicately" indicated the colony its place. The Germans offered to build two terminals in the United States if they were allowed to complete the pipeline. The petition was denied. The sovereign's verdict - to build terminals, I won't order the pipe and the slaves went out. Thus, Frau was practically whipped with a damp cloth in public. What to do, bitter slave share crying And this is the "backbone" of the EU? It is especially fun to hear the whining about "unfounded accusations" lol
    And the rise in prices by 20% is probably not much, the burgher will pull everything out. Probably Russia should also raise the price. Let the market decide winked

      Not only to raise the price, but also to cut supplies by stopping transit through Banderostan. Enough to feed Bandera thieves to the detriment of the Russian Federation!

        Could be so yes After waiting for frost. Let Zelensky try to live on the real reverse for payment under the contract (download or pay). But until the issue with Belarus is resolved, nothing can be done, there is simply no point. Lukashenka "closed" the border, but the Poles are already laughing loudly, everything goes freely across the border.
        True, I would like to discuss in advance that the Germans would transfer money in the same volume laughing

          It's also time to have a tough talk with Lukashenka. Without the help of the Russian Federation, he will very soon have to dream of a one-room apartment on the outskirts of Rostov, and he is still trying to pretend to be a sheikh of Saudi Arabia

            He will play and flutter to the last. If only the country did not ditch. Let's wait, on October 2 they have a congress, let's see what they decide.

              He does not give a damn about the country, just like other former Soviet tsars who separated from Russia, his own power is dear to him, and therefore Yanukovych and Lukashenka flirted with the Nazis. Only one has already played out and the second is hanging on snot, but still trying to inflate his cheeks in front of the Russian Federation. So they can refuse in an apartment in Rostov ... then Saddam's rope will become a very real end

    If environmentalists put Germany in a situation in which it will again not be able to completely get rid of environmentally dirty coal energy, then these are not environmentalists, but the lackeys of the United States, who need Germany only to parasitize on it for American cookies.
