Germany refused to halt the completion of Nord Stream 2 after new US sanctions

The official representative of the German government, Martina Fitz, announced that the position of the Cabinet of Ministers of Germany did not change after the Americans introduced new sanctions restrictions on the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.

We took note of the latest events, our principled position on extraterritorial sanctions has not changed ... This is a commercial project

- said Martina Fitz, stressing that Berlin's position on the construction of Nord Stream 2 remains the same, and Germany will not stop completing the 94 percent finished pipeline.

Washington on Tuesday January 19 imposed new sanctions against the pipe-laying barge Fortuna, which is currently in the port of the German city of Rostock. The sanctions also affect the owner of Fortuna - the company KBT-Rus. The United States is imposing these restrictions as part of the CAATSA Act passed by Congress to counter the adversaries of the United States by imposing sanctions.

The representative of the German Foreign Ministry, Andrea Sasse, at the department's briefing, noted that the American side had informed the German Foreign Ministry about the inclusion in the sanctions list of German firms and ships participating in the SP-2.

    They say one thing, but the German sea is not visible. Like we are for! But let the Russians themselves finish building. The Germans are cunning.
    1. No, well, we must complete the construction without a bazaar, as the contract says, and the Germans respect contracts!

    The Germans sent the occupier on a foot trip with an erotic bias.
    The situation is changing before our eyes.
    What about the Chancellor Pact? Apparently, they proceed from the fact that the new administration of the occupier is not legitimate.
  4. The Germans thought it over in the cold, they got tired of clanging their teeth!

    Completed - not completed, what's the difference? All the same, the standard of living will not rise! Therefore, the common people - just - do not care!
