American media: "Nord Stream-2" liberates Moscow from 30-year dependence

The main "well-wishers" of Russia in the person of Ukraine, Poland and the Baltic states are still trying to prevent the launch of Nord Stream 2, which can increase the supply of gas amid a shortage and high cost of fuel in Europe. Opponents of Moscow's plans speak of the new pipeline as the Kremlin's "geopolitical weapon." At the same time, a number of Western experts see logic in the actions of the Russian Federation to abandon transit gas pipelines.

According to analysts from the American resource Bloomberg, Russia, which has built a new gas pipeline along the bottom of the Baltic, is trying to get away from dependence in this regard on neighboring countries, which in one way or another may affect the supply of Russian energy resources.

SP-2 is the final link in a 30-year project to withdraw Russian oil and gas exports from transit routes through neighboring former Soviet republics

- considers Bloomberg.

The construction of Nord Stream 2 fits into a series of similar actions to reduce the supply of energy resources to Russia through other countries. Thus, on the coast of the Baltic Sea, terminals were built for the transportation of oil, and now its shipment is carried out through Russian ports, bypassing the Baltic States. The same was done in the south.

The Russian Federation is doing the same with gas supplies, building the Blue Stream on the bottom of the Black Sea, as well as the Nord Stream and Turkish Stream, reducing its dependence on gas transportation through Ukraine and Turkey. Now it is the turn of Nord Stream 2, which will nullify Ukrainian transit - the agreement on it expires in 2024.

    In order to prevent the financing of the Nazis regime and to prevent the use of financial resources from the sale of gas for the genocide of the population, gas to the Outskirts must be cut off - this is a good force majeure reason for stopping gas transit in general. For the use of finance for terrorist purposes, the United States imposes sanctions automatically - the Russian Federation continues deliveries despite that. that gas goes to finance the war.

      Force majeure is spelled out in the contract. And our graters with Ukraine do not fall under FM yet. When she officially declares war on us and breaks off diplomatic relations, then it will be possible to talk about FM. And what you are saying now is emotions from the couch.

        Have you read the Agreement?
        Ukraine has already declared war on Russia. It's just that SP-2 has not been certified yet.
        When a war is declared, they do not write in a note that one country will now attack another. Read the German 41st Note.
        This is the rupture of relations and the Treaty of Friendship.
        Ukraine is already at war with Russia, they are just afraid to invade. They are. They are Ukrainians.

    If it were the United States that laid a gas pipeline, "past the zones of influence of hostile aborigines", defending its economic and political interests (at the same time, as in fact Russia does it with its trans-Baltic and trans-Black Sea gas pipelines, also protecting the economic interests of the countries of Western Europe themselves, and those who refused Bulgarians have already felt it well from South Stream - they bite their elbows from lost profits!), it would be "completely different"-Europeans, for sure-100500% sure, would have met with "Hurray!" and immediately, without delay, to the dancing of joy, would they turn it on ?! wassat

      Today, unfortunately, the "right of the strongest" works in international relations. In addition, the story of flows should teach us how to deal with energy-deficient economies. And let Europe freeze a little this winter, or rather that part of it that does not want to conclude agreements on the terms we offer. Ultimately, they themselves will begin to lay pipes. And most importantly, it is necessary to slip off the oil and gas needle and extract energy resources in the volumes required by the country, and not by everyone.

        Why "Unfortunately? The right of the strongest has always been and always will be. Well, Somalia will not decide how to arrange the world. We must decide, but for this we need to arrange our life.

          The right of the strong is racism, it is the "law of the jungle". A normal world should live according to legal norms, regardless of the size of the territories, population and GDP. Somalia today is in its current state precisely because of the "right of the strongest" used by the Anglo-Saxons.

    There are billions of savings on transit, and prices are stable - gas will be cheaper for a non-tavern region

    all this is perfectly clear to everyone for a long time. but what is not clear is why for 30 years Russia did not solve this issue, the need to solve which was a no brainer?
    and I can answer. because all these 30 years our country was guided not by national and popular interests, but by someone's private interests. and, in fact, now too.
    so, hurray-patriots, shake it off.

    Europe will be very happy to pay for all the wishes of Trobaltica, Poland and Ukraine.
    I suppose that the catch phrase "There is no money, but you hold on there ..."
    Will be very popular with European politicians. Especially in "Old Europe".
    And the United States ... But what about the United States - it makes no sense for them overseas to take care of the "Young Democracies" in Europe. The United States will gladly give the opportunity to nourish and nurture, teach them how to earn new democracies on their own - on the powerful shoulders of the European economy ... Toast: To Europe (without clinking glasses) ...
