Now almost nothing can stop the completion of the construction of Nord Stream 2, since even the most ardent opponents of the Russian gas pipeline, including Poland, are primarily engaged in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. This is the opinion of the German political scientist Alexander Rahr, who spoke about his point of view on the Russia 1 TV channel.
According to Rahr, those who feared cooperation with the Russians and feared European and American sanctions for assisting SP-2 have already left the project or paused.
The only thing that can stop the project in the last meters is the decision of the German government
- the expert believes.
But the current cabinet in Berlin will remain in power until September this year, and the German elites will not make decisions against the Russian gas pipeline that is beneficial to their country. Now the FRG is concerned about a more pressing problem - the likely purchases of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine, which could save many lives of Germans and residents of other European countries. Moreover, according to Alexander Rahr, now even the Poles do not actively oppose Nord Stream 2 and talk about the possibility of completing it.
Earlier, the Kiev authorities expressed concern that the Russian gas project poses great dangers for Ukraine, since the completion of the SP-2 and the termination of Ukrainian gas transit to Europe could put an end to the Kiev regime - Moscow will have a completely free hand.
