US demand: "Nord Stream 2" will stop along with Ukrainian transit


The new US president is ready to lift sanctions restrictions on Nord Stream 2 in exchange for Germany's fulfillment of a number of conditions, one of which is the preservation of gas transit through Ukraine after 2024.


According to Handelsblatt, Germany should agree to a package agreement, one of the points of which will be the preservation of gas transportation through the Ukrainian territory after 2024.

The agreement should include a condition according to which gas supplies via Nord Stream 2 can be stopped if Moscow tries to put pressure on Ukraine by reducing the volume of transit gas or even abandoning it

- noted the source of the German edition in the administration of Joseph Biden.

Washington also proposes to revise the terms of the current agreement on gas supplies through Ukraine. According to the White House, the terms of supply should be softened in favor of Kiev. Meanwhile, the Russian "Gazprom" already pays for Ukrainian transit at the highest rates - they are three times higher than the payment for pumping "blue fuel" through Poland.

The United States also speaks of the need to increase the capacity of Ukrainian underground gas storage facilities and the development of Ukraine's gas transportation system for the future transportation of hydrogen fuel.

If Moscow does not use SP-2 as a weapon against Kiev, Joe Biden agreed to remove all sanctions restrictions from the Baltic gas pipeline.

    Washington can go to the forest with its ultimatums, and it's time for Germany to think about who it is, a sovereign state, or Washington's servant.

    preservation of gas transit through Ukraine after 2024

    So after all, no one is against if political issues are excluded from the transit agreement and proceed from commercial ones.

      The transit through Ukraine is exclusively political. There is no economic sense. But Washington's proposal completely negates any economic agreement. Never and nowhere have we made any "batch" decisions. This is purely political pressure. The potato seller does not tell me "I will sell potatoes if you also buy a pumpkin from my neighbor"

    Was it the Biden family in Ukraine who pocketed a piece of the gas transportation system through muddy schemes? Is the president of the light elves trying to recapture his investments?

    The strengthening of the economic position of a hostile country under the nickname "Ukraine" is not and should not be included in the economic policy of the Cabinet of Ministers of Russia, by definition. So your business is to advise us (politely), and our business is to send you further (in Russian). The only way!

    - Yes ... this transit by any ... - and so it will be saved ... - What is it about ...

    The United States also speaks of the need to increase the capacity of Ukrainian underground gas storage facilities and the development of Ukraine's gas transportation system for the future transportation of hydrogen fuel.

    - Yes, such a cheating by the United States ... -even such a swindler and a swindler ... how NOVATEK can envy ...

    If Moscow does not use SP-2 as a weapon against Kiev, Joe Biden agreed to remove all sanctions restrictions from the Baltic gas pipeline.

    - Ha, yes, the "newly minted American policemen" ... - Germany, France, Poland, etc. - they will shoot SP-2 themselves ... - without even waiting for a direct order from the United States ... - So Biden and the sanctions should be lifted won't have to ...
    - By the way ... - in the disruption of the construction of the Russian SP-2 ... - Germany is most to blame ... - This is "Merkel's Germany"; Germany, whose economy plays a key role in Western Europe and which supported all the sanctions against Russia ... - suddenly took such a position of "observation from the outside" ... - they say, let Russia extricate itself as best it can ... - And at this time a Swiss firm takes back its construction trough; and Denmark stops all construction ... The fact that Germany could not put pressure on and influence these "two" who disrupted the construction of SP-2 .... - yes ... it's just "laughing at the chickens" ... - all Germany could have done ... - but did nothing ... - And time was lost and everything turned into a long-term construction ...
    - Well, from Biden ... nothing good should be expected ...

    Yes, no problem, let only Ukraine pay for transit themselves.

    Of course, we must agree, as well as with the transfer of the gas transmission point to the Russian-Ukrainian border. Then Europe will decide whether or not to take gas along this route and pay for transit and monitor the state of the GTS (if it wants to overpay), and we, as it were, remain with our "flows".

        No, just until 2024. download in the "today swing, tomorrow - no" mode. Alternating loads are the most terrible in technology. Actually, this is already being done for the entire 2020th year. By 2024. The GTS will cover itself. In addition, its resource will be completely developed, and since the times of the USSR, no one has modernized it. Like all infrastructure in / on. Today, here, the Zaporizhzhya TPP is covered, the city of Elektrodar is without electricity and the load on the rest of the power system is abnormal. It is she who has not yet disconnected from the power system of the Russian Federation, as the idiot Vitrenko wanted, acting Minister of Energy.

      Germany is not an independent state. Since 1945 occupied by the US. Plus the Chancellor-Pact, which no one has seen, but the existence of which no one doubts. Like Israel's nuclear weapons.
