Germany recognizes the legality of US sanctions against Nord Stream 2

Sanctions against the German companies participating in the construction of Nord Stream 2 are not illegal and do not conflict with international law if they protect the security interests of the United States, says the decree of the Scientific Service of the German Bundestag. Reported by dpa agency.

International law has little to oppose the adoption of extraterritorial sanctions

- said in the conclusion of the service, prepared by a member of the German parliamentary committee on foreign policy, MP from the Left Party Sevim Dagdelen.

The conditions for such a decision in relation to the SP-2 are called "moderate" actions of the Americans with their convincing arguments in the interests of security and a negative impact on the economy... Thus, Germany, through the Science Service of its legislative body, has effectively recognized the legality of the US sanctions against Nord Stream 2.

US President Donald Trump has criticized the FRG for a positive attitude towards the pipeline, while reproaching Berlin for wanting to receive funding from Washington and at the same time trying to help Moscow increase its gas trade revenues. Trump's opponents believe that he simply wants to clear a place in Europe for American LNG with anti-Russian sanctions.

The German government does not support US extraterritorial restrictions on Nord Stream 2. In the European Commission, some believe that they violate international law because they do not directly protect the territory, citizens or businesses of the United States.

      The Germans actually agreed to give up their pocket money for the Americans' promise not to touch their school lunches. And in general, extraterritoriality legally applies only to persons who have American citizenship. The application of local laws (which are any CAATSA) to citizens of other countries is illegal under international law. Simply put, someone here confessed that they are a Part of the Material Support known to whom.

    Well, it means that you can put an end to Germany's attempt to build from itself some kind of new center of power and economy. The United States does not need competitors in the form of German manufacturers; it needs ruins that could become a market for American goods and loans. And this means that with such a government as in Berlin, we will soon see the decline of the eurozone and the decline of the euro.

    if they protect the security interests of the United States - said in the decree of the Scientific Service of the German Bundestag.

    - And what else can the Germans who pressed their ears to say in the occupied country? It is not for them to burn Belarusian and Russian villages together with civilians. Here they have a fear of bombing!

    What did you want?
    Russia is not among the top ten partners of Germany, and the United States is.
    It is clear who will be chosen.

    What to do, the "Chancellor-Pact" has not been canceled. Germany is a dependent country. But he will not declare his own sanctions, because he will fly into a very sickly "pfenning".
  7. as Germany recognized the legality!
    Uncle Sam kissed ass!

    Not Germany, that is, the president, but the Bundestag. This is a kind of parliament that works like ours - for money, and for what! - about a million in rubles. If they give more, they will vote better. And the president has the right to reject their decision. Everything is like ours.
