Western media: The purpose of Navalny's return is Nord Stream 2


Many people are trying to understand why the Russian anti-corruption blogger Alexei Navalny suddenly wanted to return to the country that allegedly tried to poison him, writes the Canadian analytical publication Global Research.


Before that, he underwent treatment in one of the clinics in Berlin. Western media claim that he was poisoned with a Russian-made Novichok substance, but Moscow categorically denies this.

The authorities would hardly have allowed Navalny to leave the Russian Federation for the FRG if they really wanted to eliminate him. In recent years, forces hostile to Moscow have been actively trying to present Russia as an aggressive country that needs to be isolated from the rest of the world.

Many thought that the "Berlin patient" would spend the rest of his life abroad, acting as a symbolic but politically insignificant figure in the Russian opposition. That's why Navalny's act is so surprising.

The Russian authorities kept their promise and placed Navalny in custody until February 15, 2021 for violating the suspended sentence. Jake Sullivan, the new US president's national security adviser, has already criticized the Kremlin and demanded its release. This demand was picked up in the UK and Germany. It is obvious that the West is using the situation to continue the information war against the Russian Federation. In turn, Moscow recalled the need to respect the legislation of other countries.

Analysts believe Navalny has timed his provocative and senseless return to Russia to coincide with Joe Biden's inauguration. The arrest of an anti-corruption blogger should give a publicly plausible pretext for the new US administration to organize another "crusade" against Russia.

Moscow reasonably suspects Navalny of cooperation with the US special services, which use him for various provocations in the framework of a hybrid war against the Russian Federation. Navalny never really believed that the Russian authorities wanted to kill him, otherwise he would hardly have returned to where they tried to take his life. Curators are interested in it in the form of an “icon” of the opposition, so in Russia it will be more useful.

There are two real goals of Navalny's return to Russia - rallying the opposition and justifying sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. Moreover, stopping the gas transmission project is a priority, the newspaper emphasizes.

    He will receive a real term, will serve and he will again be thrown out for feeding in a gay pigsty called the EU. And then the essence of the skripal awaits him. Nobody wants to feed him.

      A newcomer enters the camera and yells:
      "Who is the power here?"

      The question is how long he will be kicked, where he will be assigned a place, how he will serve his sentence (in what status), will he be bent at all in the zone?

    Western media messed things up again. Not "Novice", but "Fool". These are essentially different substances. laughing

    SP-2 will be stopped, but the frost has not been canceled. There are many gas buyers in Asia and prices are higher than in Europe.

      Except, nothing else? And frosts are not forever. Gas production in the world is ahead of the growth in its consumption.

        Gas covers a very significant energy demand in Germany. Germany has only 8% of its gas, the rest is exported. About 40% are from Russia, 30% are Norwegian, 22% are from Holland.
        The Dutch field is depleted. The deliveries from there are about to stop. The Norwegians are delivering to the brink of their capabilities. Today only Russia can make up for the loss of Dutch gas. For this, they began to build SP2.

        Frost has nothing to do with it. Gas is used not only for heating.

        There is a lot of gas produced in the world, but not all methods of its delivery are sufficiently cost-effective.

        Many EU members, as well as your country, literally sit on the neck of such economically powerful countries as Germany, so it should be in your best interests not to prevent them from earning "for themselves and for that guy." So your silly "croaking" here on the site looks more than inappropriate.

          You forgot about LNG. And this is a revolution.
          In addition, Turkey has now found gas in Wed. and Cher. seas. And she tries first to buy gas from Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan. The pipe seems to be there.
          The market is not a stable thing, and it can reorient itself.
          And the share of the Russian Federation in the EU gas market is falling as a result.

            I have not forgotten anything, I gave you an example for pipe gas.
            LNG has its own market, its own purpose. This is a separate topic.

            In addition, Turkey has now found gas in Wed. and Cher. seas. And she tries first to buy gas from Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan. The pipe seems to be there.

            We're talking about SP2, which is being built primarily for the needs of Germany.

              Germany somehow managed without this pipe. Or what has changed there?
              Here's the FACT:
              The demand for energy in the FRG has been steadily declining for a decade and a half. The coronavirus pandemic has dramatically intensified this trend. In 2020, energy consumption in the German market fell by 8,7% compared to 2019 and reached the lowest in the history of a unified Germany. If we compare it with 2006, when the peak in energy consumption was recorded in the largest EU country, then the decrease was 21%.
              There is also a version that Putin decided to strangle Ukraine in such a way, depriving the income from transit. But so far the States are breaking off this option.

                Many questions, a person could answer himself if he switched on his brain more often.)

                About 40% are from Russia, 30% are Norwegian, 22% are from Holland.

                Do you really need to translate from Russian into Russian?

                Naturally decreases. This is a normal trend. And not only in Germany. Modern technologies enable more efficient use of energy.
                The statistics of reducing the energy costs of high-tech countries is determined by another important factor: In these countries, they place more emphasis on the further development of the technological base, and the production itself is transferred, ideally, to the near (as needed and far) abroad.
                What prevents the Germans from having a desire to earn extra money on the supply of blue fuel to the Czech Republic / Slovakia / Poland?

    The real goal is one - the Germans simply surrendered it. Or changed to something you need.

    Navalny is not an independent figure. It's as clear as daylight. If there was no support for him from the West, he would have been crushed long ago. He wouldn't even dare tweet. The whole story, starting with the poisoning of Navalny, treatment in Germany and his return, was directed by the special services. The most interesting thing is that this operation was staged during the period of anarchy in the United States. From which we can conclude that the special services are not always controlled by the US authorities, but mostly by shadow centers. The purpose of this operation: to create a fund for rejection of Russia in Europe and thereby push Europe and, above all, Germany to abandon Nord Stream 2; create a bad background for Russia in the new US administration; once again try to undermine the situation in Russia.
    This is not the first operation of the Western special services against Russia. For example, recently there was a similar operation in Belarus after the presidential elections. And similar provocations will continue from the West.
    One thing is not taken into account by the special services of the West - Navalny is not popular among the people. He behaves repulsively. He repeats words about corruption like a boring mantra. And purely outwardly, he is unpleasant. The people well remember the 90s in Russia and understand that his activities lead back to the 90s or to the situation in Ukraine.

    On January 21, the European Parliament adopted a resolution over the arrest of blogger Alexei Navalny in Russia, demanding that the EU “immediately impede the completion of the Nord Stream 2 project, as well as strengthen restrictive measures against Moscow. Thus, the Russian energy project "SP-2" became the expected target of the West in the situation with the blogger Navalny.

      I am surprised at your short memory. Have you already forgotten Crimea and New Russia? Western politicians have a good memory.
      Navalny is another reason for everything.
