Nord Stream 2 will soon face two new challenges


US sanctions may become just one of the problems that threaten the implementation of Nord Stream 2. According to Bloomberg experts, there are at least two more stumbling blocks for the successful operation of the Russian gas pipeline.


The first possible problem is withdrawal from active political life of Germany Angela Merkel and her CDU party. Elections to the Bundestag are due in September this year, and the delegates will later elect a chancellor. In this regard, many give the palm to the Green Party and its leader Annalena Baerbock, who is not so optimistic about the SP-2 - in her opinion, the pipeline along the bottom of the Baltic could become a source of geopolitical problems and pose a threat to the region's ecology.

Another problem for Nord Stream 2 may be the impossibility of its certification. The fact is that the Norwegian company Det Norske Veritas Holding AS in charge of this refused to participate in the project, but the pipeline will not work without the appropriate certification procedures.

Sanctions from the US and the EU also remain undoubted obstacles to the SP-2. Nevertheless, German Chancellor Angela Merkel believes that the benefits from the implementation of this purely commercial project are much greater than the disadvantages. In addition, Europe needs inexpensive and environmentally friendly fuel that Russia can provide.

    All this until the first cold winter, such as this one, during which all these windmills were stupidly frozen, and when the Germans' ass starts to freeze, they will put all these greens in prison with the blue ones.

      That's how it happened this winter in Texas. When snowfalls started and good frosts hit and all their vaunted green energy flew into the chimney. Now they shout, we don't need such green energy, otherwise we'll freeze everything with it. And with the Germans, I am simply amazed, you pull the pipeline for them so that they always have warmth and this gas is three times cheaper, so they break down for something, they don't like all that, all those claims are not clear. I think they will freeze well once (for example, like in Texas) and immediately grow wiser.

      necessity sharpens the mind

        There is the same rubbish as in the Russian Federation Chubais and the company, which receives a salary at the US Embassy. Remember the anti-Russian hysteria in Finland. At the time of Brezhnev, the USSR did not occupy Finland, although it could have done it with one left and in the time of Stalin, even in 1945 he did not, although he could, and now in Finland, allegedly, NATO bases are urgently needed, ostensibly for defense from the Russian Federation. The Russian Federation is not going to attack Finland, and this is even understandable to the horse, but those who need NATO bases in Finland are burning money from the US Embassy, ​​and they don’t care about Finland, which is being dragged into another war, by its Russophobia. Surely every such talker already has a US passport and a house somewhere in Boston.

        They have "bosses" in the Washington regional committee. It decides everything for the Germans.

    There are about seventy kilometers left. Let it be completed, and then we'll see.

    You just need to finish building this "SP-2", and not "strain" too much with its "certification" and admission. Another cold winter ... will force Europeans to "jump" to get certification and admission / launch.
