Germany fell into Russia's gas trap for decades - Polish press


Germany's move away from nuclear power will increase the country's dependence on natural gas, according to the International Energy Agency. Germany intends to overcome this dependence by replacing natural gas with so-called "renewable" analogues (biogas, hydrogen) in accordance with a plan to reduce CO2 emissions. However, according to experts from the Polish portal Biznes Alert, this could increase Germany's dependence on Russia.


Berlin calls for the development of a concrete and detailed strategy to combat global warming in cooperation with Moscow ahead of the March talks between the European Council and Russia. In Germany, they adhere to a similar policy rapprochement with the Russian Federation, despite the imprisonment of the Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, the continuing occupation of the Ukrainian Crimea and other actions hostile to the West by Russia.

The German think tank DGAP believes that economic the interdependence of Germany and Russia creates sensitive situations, which today are best symbolized by the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project. Its construction is accompanied by a kind of political corruption, which means that the defenders of this project in countries like Germany then get lucrative jobs in Russian energy companies such as Gazprom or Rosneft.

The symbiosis offered by the Germans is a beneficial solution for Russia. The construction of a new gas transportation infrastructure to Europe is becoming more and more costly for Moscow from an economic and political point of view. Megaprojects like Nord Stream 2 are functioning worse and worse due to more flexible competition in the form of liquefied gas supplies, they are sure in Poland.

If such ties between Berlin and Moscow continue to grow stronger, it will be possible to say that Germany has fallen into the trap of Russia for decades. Russian "Gazprom" announced its intention to send to Europe liquefied gas that does not affect the climate, that is, one that will be accompanied by zero emissions CO2.

However, according to the Polish newspaper, the "green" gas from the Russian Federation will create the same problems in terms of energy security as the supply of conventional natural gas. Consequently, the EU's energy policy should be planned in such a way that it does not drive the European sector into such a Kremlin gas trap.

    Poles hate Germans with every fiber of their souls. More than RF.

      it's cool that Poland can't do anything) the attempts and twitching of the ailing country - reflected in its press - the petty soul of the Polish underdog
      Papuans are constantly digging graves and fighting with monuments.
      Pathetic tribe.

      Resentment and not having the strength to change anything led to this.

    Both of them have caused us a lot of harm over the past several hundred years. Germany is, of course, bigger. The fact that today we talk much better with the Germans, they confessed to all crimes, provided archives, they apologized. Today we work well with them. You in FR still cannot talk to us, and we cannot talk to you.
    And we could organize together this part of Europe in partnership. Read about the politics of Roman Dmovsky.

      who are you and why talk to you about something? You are the same as Ukraine or some sort of Latvia. You don't decide anything. You have supranational legislation. And where not Europe dictates conditions to you, Washington dictates them to you.

      So we are directly with your hosts, if anything. In general, Fort Trump - if in one word about you)

    Germany is already leaving the coal trap. Coal purchases from Kuzbass fell by 20%. The time will come to get rid of all the traps of the Russian Federation in the form of Gas.
    Qatar alone makes 70 million tons of LNG. There is so much gas that it will soon be possible to live without Russian gas.
    And what will the Russian Federation do if this gas will NOT be sold to WHO?
    Currency is NECESSARY. Buy diapers. What about the import substitution of diapers?

      just write a hashtag and we will understand that this hashtag contains all the snot and salt of the land of the Baltic and Polish

      otherwise these mattresses are text from our offended Baltic friends ... you understand. Why read them?)

      What about the import substitution of diapers?

      surprise me by telling which of the Baltic countries-tigers mastered the production of such a high-tech product. and here we will envy in Russia, build in Belarus, Turkey, India, Egypt, Iran, Finland and other countries on a nuclear reactor, and envy the tigers with their production of diapers

      Let's sell a couple of dozen fighters to China or Algeria, for example, with envy, let's look in the direction of Estonia or some other chukhonia - and feel sad

      that's how your brain works, huh?)

        Sell ​​to China or Algeria

        In China or Algeria, they themselves will decide what and from whom to buy. If you give a good price, they will BUY. If you don't sell, you will OVERGUE.
        Overproduction in the Gaza World. In the same Algeria, there is where gas will be bought CLOSER.
        And the Poles have already ordered oil in the United States. Look for the oil they bought from you.

      But where will she go, unreasonable, destroying nuclear power with her own hands ??
      Into the Qatari trap? laughing

      And what will the Russian Federation do if this gas will NOT be sold to WHO?

      Finally gasifies itself, darling .. smile

    Now, if someone proves to me that LNG gas is more profitable than pipe gas, then talk. There is no alternative and will not be seen. Russia has been standing for a thousand years and all this has been butting against it. History heals.

    Russians overestimate their capabilities. You are only strong with your Soviet republics. If it weren't for the army, you wouldn't mean anything. And the army, apart from the missile forces, was terribly behind. What do you want to fight? T72? Where are your cannons, mounds and so on? We do not need this because we do not consider ourselves an empire. But you - you are funny!

      And who told you that they would fight you?

      Nobody will fight. Tank duels, or there, bayonet attacks, you can not wait.

      If there is anything, it will be that you will be simply, banal, destroyed, because the very territory itself, and especially your states (Poland, Romania, Hungary, the Baltic states), will be claimed by Russia, and there is no need.

      But as a "scorched strip of the buffer zone", you will be more interesting (by the way, both sides).

      Therefore, it would be more rational for you (the Poles) to reckon with the Russian missile forces.

    Of course, we take you into account. Fortunately, the Baltic states, Poland, Hungary, Romunia have enough strength together to defeat you. If you shoot an atom at us, nothing will be left of you either.

      Yes, yes .. In the last war, all you were capable of was to lie under Hitler, and lie in the "missionary position" for five years, until the Russians came and pulled you out from under the Germans.

      Then the Russians turned you over, but in a different position (for the next 55 years).

      You can decide in what position you are under the Americans today.

      All that you (Poles) can do today is cleverly change “partners”.

      A vain people with great conceit. No more, no less.

    Poland, Ukraine, the Baltic states and would be glad to remain in the same trap themselves. But their owners from overseas do not allow it to be done. Debts need to be worked off. Thanks to you, the Russian leadership has begun to make more efforts to gasify their country. Already now, the cost of connecting to gas has dropped significantly and is affordable for citizens. Relations with the West have been revised. Russia sees no point in interacting with you. The slowdown in the development of Russia on your part has become clear to everyone ... As they say in the East: do not look for enemies close, but friends far away
